I want to copy the contents of five files to one file as is. I tried doing it using cp for each file. But that overwrites the contents copied from the previous file. I also tried
paste -d "n" 1.txt 0.txt
and it did not work.
I want my script to add the newline at the end of each text file.
eg. Files 1.txt, 2.txt, 3.txt. Put contents of 1,2,3 in 0.txt
How do I do it ?
You need the
cat (short for concatenate) command, with shell redirection (
>) into your output file
cat 1.txt 2.txt 3.txt > 0.txt
