Command TYPE Foundation
Displays the contents of a text file.
TYPE <cFilename> [TO PRINTER] [TO FILE <cTextFile>]
The command TYPE displays the contents of a text file on the screen. The display can be paused by pressing the key combination Ctrl+S. Output can also occur at the printer and/or to another text file. To suppress output on the screen, the command SET CONSOLE OFF must be called before executing TYPE.
When the file name <cFilename> contains no drive and/or path specification, a search for the file is performed first in the default directory specified using SET DEFAULT and then in the path list defined using SET PATH. If an output file is specified without drive and/or path, it is created in the default directory specified with SET DEFAULT.
