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

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

        Paste the lines of one file at a time rather than one line from
        each file.

   --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.
