Type: Internal (1.0 and later)
Purpose: Displays the contents of a file.
When you use the TYPE command, the file is displayed with limited on-screen formatting. Tabs are expanded and generally displayed as eight spaces wide. If you display files that contain special (non-text) characters, these characters may have unpredictable effects on your display.
Wild card characters (? and *) cannot be used with this command in either the filename or the extension.
To display the contents of the file LETTER3.TXT on drive B, enter type b:letter3.txt
