I have folder with 600+ .txt files.
Each file has couple lines of short text.
I want to create another file and write text from all those files to new one.
Are there some Terminal commands or tools to do this?


This command will take all .txt files combine to a single file.

cat ~/name_of_folder/*.txt > ~/combined.txt

    Open Terminal, write cat drag all text files you want to import to the terminal window, write ` > ` drag an empty text file to the Terminal window, press enter in Terminal. – Niklas Aug 15 '16 at 11:31
