Thaks so much Don Cragun,

Just like this, excelent, one finally question, how I can generality you code for many colums so,

... ... ...
Did you try changing $1 in both places in my script to $0 as I suggested in my post with that script if you wanted to preserve spaces in your input files?

If that didn't work, please show us the output my script produced after that change (in CODE tags) and clearly specify what needs to be done differently.

Here is a general merge
Code:
#!/bin/sh
while     
 read line2 <&4
 e2=$?
 read line1 <&3 || [ $e2 -eq 0 ]
do
 if [ -z "$line1" ]
 then
  while read line2 <&4 && [ -n "$line2" ]
  do
   printf "%s\n" "$line2"
  done 
 elif [ -z "$line2" ]
 then
  while read line1 <&3 && [ -n "$line1" ]
  do
   printf "%s\n" "$line1"
  done 
 fi
 printf "%s\n" "$line1 $line2"
done 3<file1 4<file2

Nice!

But - two lines are missing, the ones that would be first to be printed alone.

And, if you reverse the order of the files, you get
Code:
111 aaa
222 bbb
ddd
eee
fff
 
333 ggg
444 hhh
jjj

If you printed $line2 prefixed by a <TAB>, like printf "\t%s\n" "$line2" and printf "%s\t%s\n" "$line1" "$line2" , result were
Code:
111    aaa
222    bbb
       ddd
       eee
       fff
    
333    ggg
444    hhh
       jjj

Try this corrected version of MadeInGermany's proposal:
Code:
while   read line2 <&4
        e2=$?
        read line1 <&3 || [ $e2 -eq 0 ]
   do   if [ -z "$line1" ]
          then  printf "\t%s\n" "$line2" 
                while read line2 <&4 && [ -n "$line2" ]
                   do printf "\t%s\n" "$line2"   
                   done
        elif [ -z "$line2" ]  
          then  printf "%s\n" "$line1"
                while read line1 <&3 && [ -n "$line1" ]
                   do   printf "%s\n" "$line1"
                   done
        fi
        printf "%s\t%s\n" "$line1" "$line2"
   done 3<file1 4<file2
aaa    111
bbb    222
ccc
ddd
eee
fff
    
ggg    333
hhh    444
iii
jjj

Still open: correction for done 3<file1 4<file1

Indeed the output was not exact, and one line was even left out.
Here is another fix:
Code:
while     
 read line2 <&4
 e2=$?
 read line1 <&3 || [ $e2 -eq 0 ]
do
 if [ -z "$line1" ] && [ -n "$line2" ]
 then
  while
   printf "\t%s\n" "$line2"
   read line2 <&4 && [ -n "$line2" ]
  do :
  done 
 elif [ -z "$line2" ] && [ -n "$line1" ]
 then
  while
   printf "%s\n" "$line1"
   read line1 <&3 && [ -n "$line1" ]
  do :
  done
 fi
 printf "%s\t%s\n" "$line1" "$line2"
done 3<file1 4<file2

Here the printf is moved to the while, again using the "list" feature of while (takes the exit status of the last command).
An empty loop causes an error, therefore the :.
In effect it emulates a repeat-until (or do-until) loop.

Hello,
For and only for fun, another way in bash and with paste:
Code:
unset B C
F() { [ ${#2} -eq 1 ] && ((X++)) || B[$X]=${B[$X]}$2 ; }; X=1 ; mapfile -c 1 -C 'F' <file2
F() { [ ${#2} -eq 1 ] && ((X++)) || C[$X]=${C[$X]}$2 ; }; X=1 ; mapfile -c 1 -C 'F' <file1
[ ${#B[@]} -le ${#C[@]} ] && Y=${#C[@]} || Y=${#B[@]}
X=1;while [ $X -le $Y ] ; do paste <(echo -n "${B[$X]}") <(echo -n "${C[$X]}") ; ((X++)) ; echo ;done

Beware, this method load files in memory.
Regards.
