sfk join inputfile.part1 [outputfilebase] [-test] join many input files into one output file. input files must have extensions like .part1, .part001 etc. if outputfilebase is omitted, outputfilename is just like inputfile, but without the ".part1" extension. options -test does not really join the files, but reads all input files, telling the overall md5 checksum. join -test is recommended after every "sfk split" command, to verify if the splitted files are ok and can be rejoined. -force if the output file exists already, overwrite it without asking back. see also sfk split split large files into smaller ones sfk media join files of any name by using sfk select -sort ... +media -joinraw without checksum verification. sfk snapto join text files into one document web reference http://stahlworks.com/sfk-join examples sfk join d:\transfer\easy.avi.part1 e:\full.avi joins easy.avi.part1, .part2 etc. into full.avi sfk join -test d:\transfer\easy.avi.part1 simulates joining (does not write any output file), and tells if the input files are ok, by checksum.
