Opposite of Split

Hi Folks!! I had a very huge file containing 4GB of data in it and i had to move that to a different server. Since, i thought moving of 4GB data is gonna take more time, i splitted the file into four parts using split command

split -b 1499889664 abcd.cpk

It splitted the file and now after moving the file, how do i join those files into one. Is there anyway i can achieve that? Please need ur help..

Yes cat joins the files listed as its arguments and sends the output to standard out. That's all it ever does. That is how it got its name. When used with a single file and when standard out is a the terminal, yes it can be used to view a single file.

cat file1 file2 file3 file4 > combined_file
