But it has -dd built-in, isn't it ?
sash -c ' -dd if=(any files you want) of=/dev/stdout '
can do a similar function like cat, I think. Well, this one
output extra two lines at the end. if these "xxxx record in,
xxxx record out" messages were sent to stderr, instead of stdout,
then adding "2>/dev/null" could do the same as the cat does
(in simplest way, of course. various features in cat itself
are not achieved, but it is beyond the scope of emergency tool)

I don't know the answer of this question.
# I will use sash -more built-in to display the contents of the files,,,
