horizontal to vertical


Hi all,

Assume that i have following text in a text file

centos redhat fedora ubuntu

I want these to be arranged like this

centos
redhat
fedora
ubuntu

Means that the text seperated by spaces needs to be ordered in the above manner.Is there any automatic way of doing so or using any single command.

Your suggestions please

Hi dinakumar12

This will require little bit of scripting as follows:
Code:
#!/bin/bash
for i in `cat filename`
do
	echo $i
done
Edit: David the H. suggestion is much better than this one
