Whenever I type ls I can barely see the output of the directory because it scrolls by too quickly. How
can I actually read the output?

To prevent the output of ls from scrolling by too quickly, pipe the output to a utility such as less or
more. You will then be able to see the output one screen, or "page" at at time.

To read the contents of /etc with less, type the following command at the shell prompt:

ls -al /etc | less

To move forward a screen, press [Space] bar; to move back a screen, press the [b] key; to quit, press

You can achieve the same results with more, another paging utility.
