join two lines together

Hi,
I have a file with on one line a uid, and on the next line a date. I am trying to make the to into one line.
Here's an example:

koppx
20031125

kraan
20031119

sarox
20031107

And this is what i want it to be:

koppx;20031125
kraan;20031119
sarox;20031107

I have been trying by using sed, but i cannot come up with anything that works at all..

Any ideas for a shell or perl script to do the job??

Hi !

I guess that this command will help you :

cat file_with_contents | xargs -n 2 | awk '{ print $1";"$2 }'

It worked fine in my test !

I hope help you !!!

If you can't do it in sed then do it in awk...
Code:
awk '{printf $0 ";"; getline; print $0}' $FILE

sed 'N;s/\n/\;/' < inputfile > outputfile
