Small tools

You can compare two files using command diff and sdiff:
example: diff file1 file2 or sdiff file1 file2

head --> to see the top content of the file

head filename.txt
head -10 filename.txt ---> to see the first 10 lines

tail filename.txt --> to see the last line

tail -10 --- > to see the last 10 lines

tail -f --> to see files/log, when it keep updating
