Bonus points for not using cat, but it sounds like you're recommending a
manual you yourself haven't read.

    $ for each in /etc/rc.d/* ; do more $each ; done

Or skipping the unecessary logic: 

    $ more /etc/rc.d/*

Sarcasm is mostly counterproductive, doncha think?

My guess is the OP is inquiring about scripting in general, but bash(1)
and readline(3) in particular.  If that's the case, the manpages should
be more than adequate; a reading of Mendel Cooper's Advanced Bash
Scripting Guide (available for free at a Google search near you) would
also be useful for a practical perspective.  Recommending the K&R book I
don't think is appropriate.
