I have a txt file that contains some numbers like this:
1 2 3 4 5
And I have another txt file that contains the same number of lines, but with other numbers:
6 7 8 9 10
I want to add them together, namely 1+6, 2+7, 3+8, etc.. How do I write the script?
By the way, I've got a variety of answers so far, and only after I tried them on my files did I realise some of the methods can't deal with decimals. Some of my files contain decimals, and I need to be accurate, so if you would like to add an answer, could you show a method that can calculate decimals accurately. Thanks.
