I found this link About fractional verticle scrolling for emacs. However there was not any explanation about how to configure this for scrolling of normal files.

How do I configure a fractional scroll step? I am thinking of implementing a smooth scrolling configuration.

That's to be expected because this is the Emacs Lisp reference, not the Emacs manual. It explains how a developer can adjust the vertical scrolling in a fine-grained way.

Emacs 26.1 introduced pixel-scroll-mode which demonstrates this capability.
