    Amazing website. I am a newbie, however I have a quick question in regards to “cat” command and the example above:
    oot@tecmint:~# cat a.txt b.txt c.txt d.txt abcd.txt
    Are you trying to concatenate 5 files (a, b, c, d, abcd.txt) and print the content, or are you trying to concatenate a, b, c, d to abcd.txt? If the latter, should not this command be:
    oot@tecmint:~# cat a.txt b.txt c.txt d.txt >>abcd.txt
    Again – I have learnt a lot, and I am trying to follow every example. It took me a while to understand what was going on with the first command. Thank you!
