CAT(1)                                                     CAT(1)

     NAME
          cat - catenate 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 file is given, or if the argument `-' is encountered,
          cat reads from the standard input.  Output is buffered in
          blocks matching the input.

     SEE ALSO
          pr(1), cp(1)

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