Unix Version 7 - man page for cat (v7 section 1)

CAT(1)				     General Commands Manual				   CAT(1)

NAME
       cat - catenate and print

SYNOPSIS
       cat [ -u ] file ...

DESCRIPTION
       Cat reads each file in sequence and writes it on the standard output.  Thus

	      cat file

       prints the file and

	      cat file1 file2 >file3

       concatenates the first two files and places the result on the third.

       If  no  file  is given, or if the argument `-' is encountered, cat reads from the standard
       input.  Output is buffered in 512-byte blocks unless the standard output is a terminal  or
       the -u option is present.

SEE ALSO
       pr(1), cp(1)

BUGS
       Beware of `cat a b >a' and `cat a b >b', which destroy input files before reading them.
