Let's say I have a script called
script, that reads from
stdin and spits out some results to the screen.
If I wanted to feed it contents of one file, I would have typed:
$ ./script < file1.txt
But what if I want to feed the contents of the multiple files to the script the same way, is it at all possible? The best I came up with so far was:
cat file1.txt file2.txt > combined.txt && ./script < combined.txt
Which uses two commands and creates a temp file. Is there a way to do the same thing but bypassing creating the combined file?
