Concatenate Multiple Files
Concatenate Multiple Files joins files head-to-tail. It's useful for combining data files, adding headers to files, and a host of other purposes. This application is a wrapper for the UNIX command 'cat'.
This replaces an older version of the same tool by M. Vaughn.
- To use Concatenate Multiple Files, upload your data in plain text format. Compressed (.gz) files are allowed.
