Question about /proc

hi,
we all know /proc is about the information of active process,
I have just read an artical which said you can use /proc/cpuinfo,
/proc/net./proc/meminfo etc. to know about some hardware
information .But I want to know how to use with command line?
# 2  
You simply cat the /proc entries.

BTW: When you use ps and other command utilities, these utilities (the more modern versions) work as the command line interfaces to the /proc filesystem.
