To view the contents of a file on the command line, you would change your directory to match the location of the .txt file. You can use nano or vim format. Then use the following command to open the file nano profile.txt or vi profile.txt . To read a file in pages, use more profile.txt or less profile.txt

treehouse:~/workspace/documents$ ls profile.txt resume.txt treehouse:~/workspace/documents$

Answer: more profile.txt
