Display the contents of a text file or files.
syntax TYPE [drive:]pathname(s)
If more than one file is specified the filenames are included
in the output.
If a wildcard is used the filenames are not displayed.
Output can be redirected into a new file:
TYPE file.txt > Newfile.txt
Output can be appended to an existing file:
TYPE file.txt >> ExistingFile.txt
To do the same with user console input :
TYPE CON > Newfile.txt
This will require a CTRL - Z to indicate end of file.
When using redirection to SORT a file the TYPE command is used implicitly
SORT < MyFile.txt
