I don't know of a module but this is dirt easy to do with standard perl. Here's a quicky program for you. I tried to demonstrate good habits - 5.005 compliance, safe-two-arg open, localizing filehandles before use, platform independance with binmode, and checking system calls for errors.

use strict; use vars qw( $DESTINATION @SOURCES ); $DESTINATION = pop @ARGV; @SOURCES = @ARGV; local *DEST; open DEST, "> $DESTINATION\0" or die "Can't overwrite $DESTINATION: $!"; binmode *DEST or die "Can't binmode $DESTINATION: $!"; for my $file_name ( @SOURCES ) { local *IN; open IN, "< $file_name\0" or die "Can't open $file_name for readin +g: $!"; binmode *IN or die "Can't binmode $file_name: $!"; local $/ = \ 8192; while ( my $chunk = <IN> ) { print DEST $chunk or die "Can't write to $DESTINATION: $!"; } close IN or warn "Can't close $file_name after reading: $!"; } close DEST or warn "Can't close $DESTINATION after writing: $!";

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
