appending the contents of multiple text files into 1 file

Paul Danese

Hi,

is there a simpler/more idiomatic way to append/join the contents of
multiple text files into 1 file?

this works, but i'm trying to see if there are more succinct methods.
thanks!

mynewfile =3D File.new('C:\mynewfile.txt', 'w')
@myfilenames.each do |mfn|
File.open('#{mfn}.txt') do |file|
file.each_line {|line| mynewfile.puts(line)}
end =20
end
mynewfile.close

end
end
mynewfile.close

This should work:

=46ile.open('C:\mynewfile.txt','w') do |f|
@myfilenames.each do |mfn|
f.puts(File.read(mfn))
end
end

I hope this helps
