How can I copy five Braille volumes into one file on Windows 10?

Lee Maschmeyer

Hi all,

If I was using Linux or Cygwin I'd do:

cat 14885* > Rinehart.brf

If I was using Windows 7 I'd go to the DOS prompt and do:

copy /<some switch or other> Rinehart.brf

But I can't figure it out on Windows 10, either in Windows Explorer or PowerShell. Perhaps the biggest problem is that each volume ends with something (Ctrl+Z?) that signals the end of text and I have to defeat recognition of that switch in order to get the whole book.

I read the book, by the way, on WordPad and set the BrailleMovesActive script to make the active cursor track the Braille display as I read through the book.

If you'll excuse a small commercial, I wrote a rather complete set of scripts for Linux I can send to anybody who's interested. Write to

Thanks for any help,
