paste - merge lines of files


       paste [OPTION]... [FILE]...


       Write lines consisting of the sequentially corresponding lines from each FILE, separated by TABs, to standard output.  With no FILE, or when FILE is -, read standard input.

       Mandatory arguments to long options are mandatory for short options too.

       -d, --delimiters=LIST
              reuse characters from LIST instead of TABs

       -s, --serial
              paste one file at a time instead of in parallel

       --help display this help and exit

              output version information and exit
