There are a number of ways to list the contents of a BK-managed file. If you've already checked it out with bk co or bk get, then you can, of course, use any of the standard OS commands such as cat, more, less, vi and so on.

If you haven't checked it out yet, you can use one of the bk variations such as:

 $ bk cat README
 $ bk more README             # curiously, doesn't seem to work ... why not?

 $ bk co -p README            # lists file, without checking it out
 $ bk get -p README           # same here

In addition, you can use bk prs to list previous revisions of a file, which is explained in the next section.
