Is there a console application equivalent to Total Commander's fast file viewer (F3)?
Total Commander's (Windows app) F3 viewer can instantly "open" files of any size. The file contents is only read from the disk if you need it: that is, if you scroll or search inside the file.
Is there an alternative app for Linux/Ubuntu that will do the same, but from the console? Being a "console" app is essential, otherwise there are plenty of Total Commander alternatives that I know of having a "View"/F3 option.
