I am handling a rather large dataset. I have 238 files, for whcih I would like to import their content into excel. In order to do so, I am creating a combined txt file using
cat *.pdb > pdb_all.txt
When I count the lines (using
wc -l) in the
pdb_all.txt file, it contains only 236 lines. Can anyone tell me, if the
cat command will delete duplicates automatically? If so, I'd very much like to keep both in the correct order. If not, what can have happend in during the cat command that results in two files less?
