Other File Types?
Authored by: jakacmar on Feb 12, '04 06:31:11PM

I know that cat also works with text files, but what other file types can be merged by simply using cat and still remain usable (e.g., movie files, etc.) If anyone knows about this I'm very curious.

Other File Types?
Authored by: pembery on Feb 13, '04 06:03:21AM

I use 'cat' to join quicktime movies all the time. If I have a movies that will not fit on a single CD then I split them using the 'split' command to burn them and then join them back together using 'cat':

cat file1 file2 file3 > outputfile.mov
