you MUST use a text editor to read a text file ( or use "cat" with "more" or " less" )
just like you would have to on a windows machine !!!

Steps are:
  1. Type in "vi <name of your file>"
  2. Press ENTER
  3. Read file
  4. Exit when finished.
You can also use OTHER text editors too.

No idea what you're asking. That is a log file name, so if you want to open it in a text editor, then you would (very obviously), use that as the file name.
