    • readonly, you can quickly see what is located into that file, cat test.txt
  • less
    • similar to cat, you can see the content in a file
  • grep
    • cat sources.list | grep src
    • So it will only print lines that hava “src” from sources.list (case-sensitive or ignore that with -i)

    • chmod +x [w/r]
