Merge lines of files, write to standard output lines consisting of sequentially corresponding lines of each given file, separated by a TAB character.

SYNTAX
paste [options]... [file]...

OPTIONS
-s
--serial
Paste the lines of one file at a time rather than one line from
each file.

-d DELIM-LIST
--delimiters DELIM-LIST
Consecutively use the characters in DELIM-LIST instead of TAB to
separate merged lines. When DELIM-LIST is exhausted, start again
at its beginning.

Standard input is used for a file name of `-'' or if no input files are given.
