Viewing data in terminal mode


I have had Linux installed for about 18 months and this is something I should know, I guess. My question is this: when you hit F1, or whatever, and go into terminal mode, quite often, data more than fills the computer screen. In other words, if you go into a directory and type "ls" you see a small portion of the files in a particular directory and that's it. Is there a way to scroll or pause this deal so that you can actually see all of the information? Thanks very much....
