Here are some possibilities:
- head(iris) will show the first few rows of the data frame
- edit(iris) will put up a spreadsheet with the data frame in it that
you can scroll
- In JGR (a GUI front end for R) you can use the object browser (ctrl-B)
- If the object is a file rather than a data frame use file.show
