    How to scroll Terminal up/down line by line

    Hi, I am running Ubuntu 10.04 LTS. Scrolling the Terminal window up/down works fine using the SHIFT+PAGEUP / PAGEDOWN key combination.

    Many times I feel like scrolling the window, line by line to investigate the output minutely. I am wondering if there is a keyboard shortcut to scroll the Terminal up/down line by line?

    Moreover, I suddenly happened to discover that SHIFT+CTRL+UP Arrow /DOWN Arrow scrolls my terminal window up and down line by line. I am glad to see that working. But it does not work that way on another Linux system (CentOS), not even on console. So I am not sure if this is a real solution. Is this a configurable item on Linux Terminal to enable / disable this keyboard shortcut?

    If you are familiar with bash you can probably right a quick bash scrip using HEAD, TAIL, MORE and WHILE loop commands for the files you want to view.
