I had used my terminal window via SSH to read that file.

It works fine, as below. I gather that the experienced Linux programmers 
would not attempt to use say lscpu to obtain this information about an 
attached embedded-system device. But rather, knowing that program merely 
consulted say the cpuinfo file, they would rather read that directly as 
you have suggested.
