i have a very basic cat problem. I have 23 files, all is one line and around 100000 columns. I am trying to merge these one lines. I type the command cat test1 test2 > outcome The command line is not giving me any error but it just prints the test1 to the output. Is there any limitations to cat command? or if the number of columns are different, does cat not like it? or any missing data? How can I check my one line to see what is going wrong? Thanks

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.
To collaborate partially, you can eliminate wrong syntax, column number matching and missing data (whatever this means). I am don't know about particular limitations (although there certainly are some).
