Perl: File: Line: Read: All: How to read all lines in given text file
(s) from command line?
Use the '<>' diamond operator.
This operator gets its data from the file(s) you specified on the
command line.

Steps: Overview:
 1. -Create a Perl file (e.g. 'test.pl') containing this text
--- cut here: begin --------------------------------------------------
while( <> ) {
 print $_;
}
--- cut here: end ----------------------------------------------------
 2. -On the MSDos command line type the command
      perl <your perl filename> <your text file1> <your text file 
2> ... <your text file last>
     e.g.
      perl test.pl ddd1.txt ddd2.txt
 3. -The script will then print all lines in all this text files
     respectively
