To automatically concatenate (join) huge text files, follow these steps:
- Drag and drop your files from Windows Explorer to the TextPipe filter
window (they will then get added to the Files To Process tab)
- Re-order the file list as necessary, as the files get concatenated (joined) in the order
- Click on the Filters To Apply tab
- In the All Available Filters view, click on Special\Merge (join)
files to add it to the My Filter List view
- Enter the name of your output file in the Merge files to box
- Click the Go button at the base of the screen.
If you also want to sort the files, after Step 4, add a Sort filter from Filters\Special\Sort.
