Sources of data
 
When using the redirection character (<), you must specify a filename as the
source. When using the pipe (|), you can use such commands as DIR, SORT, and
TYPE. Before using a pipe for redirection, you should set the TEMP
environment variable in your AUTOEXEC.BAT file.
 
                                      ***

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
                               MORE--Examples
 
Suppose you have a long file named CLIENTS.NEW that you want to view on your
screen. Either of the following two commands redirects the file through the
MORE command to begin displaying the contents of the file:
 
    more < clients.new
 
    type clients.new | more
 
The MORE command displays the first screen of information from CLIENTS.NEW
and then prompts you with the following message:
 
    -- More --
 
You can then press any key to see the next screen of information.
 
                                      ***
