These are 2 probably simple questions but I've searched on here and googled around and I'm still lost.
First, I was wondering if there is a way to view stuff in the terminal that is off the screen if you aren't in a window manager. For example, if I did an apt-cache search blah, and I get 400 results and I want to go back and see all of them.
Another simple problem I've run across is wanting to copy the contents of a folder into another folder but not the first folder itself. So if I wanted to put the contents of lets say folderA into folderB, if I do (assuming they are in the same directory):
cp -r folderA folderB
this moves folderA with its contents into folderB, but I just want the contents of folderA to go directly into B. Easy to work around but just wondering if there is a way to make life a bit easier. Thanks in advance, and sorry for these silly questions
