I was just wondering how to merge files on Linux. I have some files with extensions .001, .002, .003 etc. Do I have to download something to do it? Or are there some commands that will do the job? Thank you!
which type of files are they ??
you may try merging with cat
cat file1 file2 > merged_file

Thank you, it's a wmv file and cat works! smile.gif
i can cat two files into one but Windows Media player only plays the first file and never play the second file. Can some one help.

What type of files are we talking about. Wave files for example have header information which describe how many bytes of data. I also assume that the file has some type of EOF marker. You will need an application to join music files together.
