Thanks ! many are exactly what I been lokking for:

Question re #6
So say if I want a new file from the concatenate of
foo.log2 (increaing date)

and number all lines of all log files together,

This is the right command ?

awk '{ print NR "\t" $0 }' foo.log* > foo.txt

or should I do:

awk '{ print NR "\t" $0 }' foo.log0 foo.log1 foo.log2 > foo.txt
