Question :

What is the difference between cat and more command?


Answer:

Cat displays file contents. If the file is large the contents scroll off the screen before we view it. So command 'more' is like a pager which displays the contents page by page.

cat will show the contents of the file in one shot While more will show it page-by-page (press space-bar to move to next page)

E.g:
$ wc -l employee.txt
100000

$ cat employee.txt
....
...
...

in One shot it'll show the file contents.

$ more employee.txt

page-by-page contents will be shown.

<Use space-bar to move to next page>


see: man fold
