[AmigaOS 3.1 Command Reference\Type]
Format: TYPE (<file|pattern>} [TO <name>] [OPT H|N] [HEX] [NUMBER]
Template: FROM/A/M, TO/K, OPT/K, HEX/S, NUMBER/S
Purpose: To display a text file.
TYPE will output the contents of the named file to the current window, if no
destination is given, or to a specified output file. If more than one
filename is specified, and the TO keyword is not used, the filenames will be
typed in sequence.
The OPT H and OPT N options are also available by the HEX and NUMBER
keywords, respectively. The HEX option causes the file to be typed as
columns of hexadecimal numbers, with an ASCII character interpretation
column. This is useful for analyzing object files. The NUMBER option will
number the lines as they are output.
To pause output, press the Space bar. To resume output, press Backspace,
Return, or Ctrl+X. To stop output, press Ctrl+C (***BREAK is displayed).
1> TYPE DEVS:MountList
The contents of the MountList file in the DEVS: directory will be displayed
on the screen.
