Full Discussion: Three space delimited files
Top Forums UNIX for Dummies Questions & Answers Three space delimited files Post 302533086 by evelibertine on Wednesday 22nd of June 2011 05:21:59 PM
I used paste 1a.txt 2a.txt > 3.txt

1a.txt contains 90 rows and 2a.txt contains 90 rows as well. But when I use the above function, I get a file with 180 rows. So the paste function does not merge by column, it merges by row.
