`paste': Merge lines of files ============================= `paste' writes to standard output lines consisting of sequentially corresponding lines of each given file, separated by a TAB character. Standard input is used for a file name of `-' or if no input files are given. Synopsis: paste [OPTION]... [FILE]... The program accepts the following options. Also see Note: Common options. `-s' `--serial' Paste the lines of one file at a time rather than one line from each file. `-d DELIM-LIST' `--delimiters DELIM-LIST' Consecutively use the characters in DELIM-LIST instead of TAB to separate merged lines. When DELIM-LIST is exhausted, start again at its beginning. `-f' `--first-eof' Terminate after encountering the first end of file. Before each output line is constructed, every file is checked to make sure that it is not empty. If the standard input appears multiple times on the command line, then it is checked only once. This option only applies when `-s' is not in use.
