NAME
     cat - concatenate and print

SYNOPSIS
     cat file ...

DESCRIPTION
     Cat  reads  each file in sequence and writes it on the stan-
     dard output.  Thus

        cat file

     prints the file, and

        cat file1 file2 >file3

     concatenates the first two files and places  the  result  on
     the third.

     If no input file is given, or if the argument `-' is encoun-
     tered, cat reads from the standard input file.


SEE ALSO
     pr(I), cp(I)

DIAGNOSTICS
     none; if a file cannot be found it is ignored.

BUGS
     cat x y >x and cat x y >y cause strange results.
