text_data = fileread('Question.txt');
Hello I am trying to format this text- Is there anyway I can print the same format to the command window simply?

txt=readlines('YourInputFile.txt'); % read text file as string array
fprintf('%s\n',txt) % dumpt to command window as is
However, if the only purpose is to have the text go across the screen, there's not even any reason to actually read it into memory...
type('YourInputFile.txt'); % echo a text file to command window verbatim
