appending a command to print a file in a comma delimited format

Hi everyone,

i have a file that I had grep'd from something else lets call it file1.txt which consists variable files and lines due to different scenarios/inputs
Code:
1782
9182
fe35
ac67

how can I print this in this manner?
Code:
1782,9182,fe35,ac67

also if i had piped the new output to a file say file2.txt, how can i call file2.txt using printf? please help. thanks a lot.
