    Help needed


    hi i have lfs cd and i when i use a command like ls to see whats there if there is too much files there i just see the end part. how can i scroll the output of a command or make it output bit by bit. the only way i know to get around this is using the > to send the output of a command to a file then opening it up in an editor cos i can scroll within an editer.
