I've been using Linux for 6 months now and have yet to figure out one very simple thing.
When I use, say the cat command, all the data whizzes by on the screen until the end and then I get the familiar blinking cursor after my user name.
The question is: how do I get back to the beginning of all this data to start reading?
I've tried the up arrow, home, page up, backspace, tab, and ctrl b,
all with no luck. This also applies to anytime I'm at the command line and I've typed in enough stuff so I can't see where I started.
