HOW TO JOIN FILES IN LINUX

In this article we are going to learn how to join two or three files in linux.

Sometimes we keep records of employees , staff , students or members in different files but we want files should combine and show result of one person from two files or three files.

  • So first we will create one file  and name it as a.txt . Make sure you give numeric in front of names or details of that person . After writing evrything in that file press CTRL+D to save that file.
[root@localhost ~]# cat >a.txt
1 DEEPIT
2 NEHA
3 RAHUL
4 MARIE
5 BRAD
  • Now we another file (b.txt) to join it together . Same you have to press CTRL +D to save .
[root@localhost ~]# cat >b.txt
7406628159
8637357385
9836427965
7328767654
7527964576
  • Then we are going to combine information of two files and into new file Deepit.txt 
[root@localhost ~]# join a.txt b.txt>deepit.txt
  • You can check whether deepit.txt has been created or not.
[root@localhost ~]# ls
anaconda-ks.cfg  a.txt  b.txt  deepit.txt  Desktop  install.log  install.log.syslog
  • Now try to open deepit.txt and you will get information of both a.txt and b.txt file in deepit.txt file
[root@localhost ~]# cat deepit.txt
1 DEEPIT 7406628159
2 NEHA   8763735348
3 RAHUL  7284562746
4 MARIE  7472983486
5 BRAD   8346632946

So this how you can join two file into one .

IF you want to join three files, make three files and after that type 

[root@localhost ~]# join3 a.txt b.txt c.txt >deepit.txt

So your three files information will be in deepit.txt

This method is only been used to combine records and information of employees, staff, members , students etc .
