in reply to How to concatenate the contents of two files?

This little script will take any number of files given on the command line and concatenate them into the first file given on the command line:
my $outfile = shift; open OUT,">".$outfile or die "Could not open $outfile:$!\n"; print OUT $_ while <>;
Command Line Version:
perl -e 'open OUT,">".shift;print OUT <>' output *.txt

    Commandline version:

    perl -please *.txt > output

    Well, I suppose one could dub this a useless of use of Perl and simply do

    cat *.txt > output

    Makeshifts last the longest.

      Or the dos version
      copy /v B.txt A.txt Or for multiple files copy /v B.txt +C.txt A.txt
