You can do that pretty easily in just shell...
touch combined.txt # may or may not be necessary based on your settings
for i in dir/*.txt; do # replace dir/*.txt with whatever you want - should not be current dir
ls -l $i >> combined.txt # will include a few extra bits of info about the file
cat $i >> combined.txt
end

Open in new window
