I am using the unix
pr command to combine multiple text files into one text file:
pr -F *files > newfile
Each file is a different length, a different number of lines. I am mostly happy with the result, I like that it includes the name of the original text file followed by the contents of that file. However, I would like to eliminate the blank lines in between the name of the original text file and it's contents. I only want blank lines between the different text files to separate each. Also, it prints the character
^L after the contents of each text file, and I would like to eliminate that character.
Each file read in is also given a 'page' number. Only one file is longer than the 66 line default. that file ends up being spit into 2 'pages', and is split into 2 sections divided by blank lines. Is it possible to write that text in continuously without it being split?
Thank you for any help!
