Display lines of the file on a log

Hi,

I am using the Korn shell script to display lines of the file. For example below:

outputfile=test.dat

-- display each line of the test.dat file
abcd 345
adek 45566
dve3 34565
so on...

I appreciate your time to find a command for displaying lines of the file on the log.

Thanks,
Steve

It's not clear what you want.

If you want to display the lines of a file, use cat or a pager such as more or less.

If you want to copy it to another file, use cp.

Hi cfajohnson,

The cat command works for displaying contents of the file on the log.

Thanks for so much of your time.
Steve
