ABSTRACT

 This is a program which concatenates an arbitrary number of
text files into one larger output file (similar in concept to
the UNIX CAT utility).  The command line syntax for this
program is:
    cat [-options] file1 file2 ... filen output_file
where each "filei" may be either a conventional file or an
include file (include files are the same as that defined for
the PAGER2 tool in the Ada Software Repository; see the documentation
on PAGER2 or the supplied documentation for details).  An include
file is denoted by starting with an "@" sign.
 The following options are recognized:
   Symbol    Meaning
     i       Inspect; prompt the user for his approval
             for each file; valid user responses are
             Y, N, and Q (quit)
     h       Display help information and exit program
     p       PAGER2 prefix; prefix each file with the
             PAGER2 banner, which is:
               --:::::::::
               --filename
               --:::::::::
 This program may be used as a companion tool to the PAGER2 tool.
 See the Software User's Manual for further details of the
specific implementation of this tool.  The above description
is a minimum requirements statement.
 The following DoD-STD-2167A documentation is provided:
    SRS - Software Requirements Specification
    SDD - Software Design Document
    SUM - Software User's Manual
    VDD - Version Description Document
This documentation is presented as raw PTF (Portable Text Formatter)
input files.  To create formatted documents, the documentation files
must be processed by the PTF tool in the Ada Software Repository.
