8.2 paste: Merge lines of files

paste writes to standard output lines consisting of sequentially corresponding lines of each given file, separated by a TAB character. Standard input is used for a file name of `-' or if no input files are given.

Synopsis:

paste [option]... [file]...

The program accepts the following options. Also see section 2 Common options.

`-s'
`--serial'
Paste the lines of one file at a time rather than one line from each file.
`-d delim-list'
`--delimiters delim-list'
Consecutively use the characters in delim-list instead of TAB to separate merged lines. When delim-list is exhausted, start again at its beginning.
