How can we check a file content on console in windows? I have a number of .cpp and .h files in a project. I am not able to switch from one function to another. For locating functions I am using findstr. I am using EditPlus to read files. And now it is a headache to open so many editor windows.

Now I want to know Is there any command like cat in windows?
