If you cannot setup any servers (like for instance if you don't have administrator privledges), you can use uuencode, then just cat | more the file, copy it from your terminal to a regular text file, then page it some more, etc. This is rather a pain in the ass, but its what I did while I was in college (using a shell account with no ftp/etc servers *OR* ability to connect to servers). Ahhhh.....the days when life sucked Smilie
