This question already has an answer here:
I'm using Ubuntu 14.04. I have a large log file:
-rw-r--r-- 1 rails root 1792390124 Jan 10 14:54 /var/log/unicorn/unicorn.log
Nonetheless, I need to open it and find some things in it. I tried vim, but running
just opens a blank screen and even when I use Ctrl+C, nothing happens. The terminal is hung. Without upgrading any of the hardware on my machine (but I'm open to installing software), how can I open the file and look around (I don't need to edit it, I just need to read some lines from it).
