Shell Script to Read the given file contents into a merged one file

Like to have shell script to Read the given file contents into a merged one file with header of path+file name followed by file contents into a single output file.

While reading and merging the file contents into a single file, Like to keep the format of the source file.

Code:
/app/oracle/build_lib/wrkfldr952.0_20150614/ddl/alter_modify_keg.sql 
/app/oracle/build_lib/wrkfldr952.0_20150614/ddl/alter_modify_kim.sql
/app/oracle/build_lib/wrkfldr952.0_20150614/ddl/client_cmpmadr1.sql 
/app/oracle/build_lib/wrkfldr952.0_20150614/ddl/client_cmpmaur1.sql 
/app/oracle/build_lib/wrkfldr952.0_20150628/ddl/alter_modify_keg.sql
 /app/oracle/build_lib/wrkfldr952.0_20150628/ddl/alter_modify_kim.sql

------ Sample Output ----
1. Reading the file# /app/oracle/build_lib/wrkfldr952.0_20150614/ddl/alter_modify_keg.sql
Code:
aaa
  aaa
aa

2. Reading the file# /app/oracle/build_lib/wrkfldr952.0_20150614/ddl/alter_modify_kim.sql
Code:
bbbbbbbbb
#sssss   tttt 523


Thanks, Siva SQL

Please wrap all code, data/files, input & output/errors in CODE tags.
It makes it far easier to read an preserves spacing for indenting or fixed-width data.

Code:
for FN in /app/oracle/build_lib/wrkfldr952.0_20150614/ddl/*.sql
  do  echo  $FN

Thanks for the response.
However,
Using the cat the alignment of the source file is getting changed , when this is getting merged into a single file !!

Difficult to believe. Why (and how) should cat change the alignment?

Thanks RudiC, it solved the issue.
