Subject: st: Infile several ASCII files

I have a data management problem. My data are stored in several ASCII (.txt)
files. Each file has the same number of observations (in the same order). I
can -infile- each file individually, but I would like to -infile- all of
them and combine them into a one dataset. I cannot figure out how to do it
as -infile- refuses to work if data are already in memory. I suspect that
someone has already faced that problem and knows the solution. Any ideas?
Andrzej
