Linux Text Editor
 
I downloaded a LFS.txt file...so I could start reading up on linux...
Now I cant seem to find a command line text editor to view or print the file.

Also..what man pages or tools should I use to install a printer?

Im using Linux RedHat 6.2 (i386)...

thanks...Im psyched to learn linux...been into MSFT for so long and used to GUI

any help appreciated...thanks

you can use:

cat
more
vi - if you want to maybe edit the file
and many more...

man cat - for more details in options
same goes for the others if you use them.
