Is there a Windoze equivalent of the "cat" command?

I think I remember a "type" command from back in the days of DOS

You can always do "edit <textfile>" to open it in the editor, if it's still there.

you can also try more. It's not exactly the same as cat though.

Let me be a little more specific. Is there a windows command (like cat) that can grab the text from one file and append it to another text file?

Another thread that may prove useful (particularly cygwin and the last couple posts):

Thank you! "more" seems to be exactly what I needed.
