Power Filename (concat) head -1 > newfilelist

Gurus. Would appreciate your help very much.

I would like to list all the files in directory, and concat the header record in each file with the filename, and output that list to a filelist.



Thanks in advance

thanks guys. Is something like this possible with the above requirement?
ls *.dat -exec printf {"$file" head -n 1 "$file"} > listfile.lst \;

If you want to process only *.dat files, then this will do:
for i in *.dat; do awk 'NR==1{print FILENAME"|"$0}' $i >> listfile.lst; done

I don't think ls works that way.

You could just put *.dat instead of * in my code.
