       join - join lines of two files on a common field

       join [OPTION]... FILE1 FILE2

       For  each pair of input lines with identical join fields, write a line to standard output.
       The default join field is the first, delimited by whitespace.  When FILE1  or  FILE2  (not
       both) is -, read standard input.

       -a FILENUM
	      also print unpairable lines from file FILENUM, where FILENUM is 1 or 2, correspond-
	      ing to FILE1 or FILE2

       -e EMPTY
	      replace missing input fields with EMPTY

       -i, --ignore-case
	      ignore differences in case when comparing fields

       -j FIELD
	      equivalent to '-1 FIELD -2 FIELD'

       -o FORMAT
	      obey FORMAT while constructing output line

       -t CHAR
	      use CHAR as input and output field separator

       -v FILENUM
	      like -a FILENUM, but suppress joined output lines

       -1 FIELD
	      join on this FIELD of file 1

       -2 FIELD
	      join on this FIELD of file 2

	      check that the input is correctly sorted, even if all input lines are pairable

	      do not check that the input is correctly sorted

	      treat the first line in each file as field headers, print them  without  trying  to
	      pair them

       -z, --zero-terminated
	      end lines with 0 byte, not newline

       --help display this help and exit

	      output version information and exit

       Unless  -t  CHAR is given, leading blanks separate fields and are ignored, else fields are
       separated by CHAR.  Any FIELD is a field number counted from 1.	FORMAT	is  one  or  more
       comma  or blank separated specifications, each being 'FILENUM.FIELD' or '0'.  Default FOR-
       MAT outputs the join field, the remaining fields from FILE1,  the  remaining  fields  from
       FILE2,  all  separated  by  CHAR.  If FORMAT is the keyword 'auto', then the first line of
       each file determines the number of fields output for each line.

       Important: FILE1 and FILE2 must be sorted on the join fields.  E.g., use "sort -k 1b,1" if
       'join'  has  no	options, or use "join -t ''" if 'sort' has no options.	Note, comparisons
       honor the rules specified by 'LC_COLLATE'.  If the input is not sorted and some lines can-
       not be joined, a warning message will be given.
