Hello.

I have a directory with some text files I like to merge

that can be done by copy  c:\myfolder\*.txt  destfile.txt

But what I need to do is to have the files in a specific order (ie only a few of them is important)

So what I want to do is having  a file  fileorder.txt (not in the same folder)
that contains the files that should be first in that order

so the cmd file shoud read the  fileorder.txt

and merge all the files that are in there into destfile.txt
then all the other files that are not in fileorder.txt should be appended after
those files.

How can i do that?
