NAME
       paste - merge lines of files

SYNOPSIS
       paste [-s] [-d delim-list] [--serial] [--delimiters=delim-
       list] [--help] [--version] [file...]

DESCRIPTION
       This manual page  documents  the  GNU  version  of  paste.
       paste  prints lines consisting of sequentially correspond-
       ing lines of each given file, separated  by  TABs,  termi-
       nated  by  a newline.  If no files are given, the standard
       input is used.  A file name of `-' means standard input.

   OPTIONS
       -s, --serial
              Paste the lines of one file at a time  rather  than
              one line from each file.

       -d, --delimiters delim-list
              Consecutively  use  the  characters  in  delim-list
              instead of TAB  to  separate  merged  lines.   When
              delim-list  is exhausted, start again at its begin-
              ning.

       --help Print a usage message and exit with a  status  code
              indicating success.

       --version
