Schily's USER COMMANDS PASTE(1)
paste - pastes fields in files together
paste [ d=list ] [ options ] [ file1 ... filen ]
spaste [ d=list ] [ options ] [ file1 ... filen ]
Paste joins separate files by fields. It is the opposite of
the program cut.
Paste joins corresponding lines of files creating a single
line of text with a single character delimiter separating
each field. The result is displayed on standard output.
Where list specifies the list of field delimiters used
to separate the fields on output. The fields from the
list are used in a cyclic way. The first element in
the list is always used for the delimiter after the
first file. If the list includes a backslash (\), the
next character is used with a special meaning:
\n A newline is used as the delimiter.
\t A TAB is used as the delimiter.
\\ A backslash is used as the delimiter.
\0 No delimiter is inserted.
The default delimiter is a single TAB.
-e Do not output empty lines.
-s Do not paste lines from all files but paste all lines
from a single file. Start with the first entry from
the delimiter list with the beginning of a new file.
Set the maximum output linewidth (default is to allow
an "infinite" output line width).
The maximum number of files that you can join together is
