How to print the content of a file in console present in HDFS?

0 votes

I am new to Hadoop. I have uploaded the file in HDFS using the following command :

  bin/hadoop dfs -copyToLocal hdfs/path local/path

Is there a way where I do not have to download the file from HDFS to local file system for viewing the content and I can directly view the content in HDFS?
