Merge MP3 files with the Unix command cat
Authored by: Greedo on Feb 12, '04 11:52:42AM
If the files aren't in the proper order in your directory, you can merge them manually as well:

cat first_part.mp3 > newfile.mp3
cat second_part.mp3 >> newfile.mp3
cat third_part.mp3 >> newfile.mp3
Note that the first command uses > which just redirects the output to a file (overwriting it if it already exists). Subsequent commands use >> which appends the data to the end of the file. Basic Unix stuff, but handy nevertheless!

Or you can just say:

cat first_part.mp3 second_part.mp3 third_part.mp3 > newfile.mp3

all on one line.
