comment Combine multiple text files into one file
unfortunately, -t creates the same type of file that cat does, no break between text files read in.

comment Combine multiple text files into one file
yes, thank you. but cat just lists the contents of each file without the original text file name and it also lists the contents of each file one after another with no break in between. i need at least 1 blank line between the contents of each text file in the new one big file.

comment listing files in a directory without listing subdirectories and their contents in that directory
thank you for your response. unfortunately, it's not working for me, perhaps i am executing it incorrectly. if i use the exact command you gave me, i get the following error: ls: illegal option -- - usage: ls [-ABCFGHLPRSTWabcdefghiklmnopqrstuwx1] [file ...] i tried using the * wildcard character in place of as well as in conjunction with --file-type. if you could clarify i would appreciate it!
