Previewing files

To preview a text file on your terminal use the command:

   pr filename

The output is separated into "pages" of 66 lines, with a 5 line header and footer. The header contains a single line giving the name of the file and other information.

There are a number of options which allow you to change the way in which the file is displayed.
