Hi, I have 10 .txt files. Each of them have one column with variable lines. For example, file 1 has 92, file 2 has 103 lines. The content of one file is as below.

Aca10
AcrIC6
AcrIC7
AcrIE1
AcrIE3
AcrIE9
AcrIF1
AcrIF12
AcrIF16
AcrIF17.1

How to join 10 .txt files together to make a file with 10 row in shell? I tried conventional "join" command but didn't work for the files.

Cheers

so you want a new file with the content of each of the 10 input files on a row in the new file?

whether you want it in rows or columns, you should look into what the linux command paste can do for you
