Output from diffrent Programs like ls and components dosn't fit on the screen

Question

The text that some programs output is way to large to fit on the screen currently I have some problems with ls (in direcotrys with a lot of stuff in it) and components Is there a way to scroll up or display it in a way where you can read everything or save the output in an file? or some diffren solution to the problem?

You can use pipes.

ls /path/to/folder | less

"prog 1 | prog2" here means: "Take prog1 output and put it in prog2 input".

 

You can also pipe output in file. In this case use ">" symbol. Like this:

ls /path/to/folder > output.txt
