CAT(1)                                                     CAT(1)

     NAME
          cat - concatenate files

     SYNOPSIS
          cat [ - ] [ file ... ]

     DESCRIPTION
          Cat reads each file in turn and writes it on the standard
          output.  Thus

               cat file

          prints the file to standard output, and the following

               cat file1 file2 >file3

          concatenates two files onto a third.

          If no file is given, or where - is given as an argument, cat
          reads from the standard input.  Output is buffered in blocks
          matching the input.

     BUGS
          Beware of cat a b >a and cat a b >b which destroy input
          files before reading them.
