Join command combines lines from two files based on a common field.

echo "LINUX,DIR,FILE1,FILE2,FILE3" | perl -aF, -nle 'my ($fld1, $fld2, @fields) = @F; while(@fields) { print join ",", $fld1, $fld2, splice(@fields, 0, 1) }'

Lets say you have a file with the following layout:

LINUX,DIR,FILE1,FILE2,FILE3

You want the file to look like this:

LINUX,DIR,FILE1

LINUX,DIR,FILE2

LINUX,DIR,FILE3

This perl command does it for you.

perl -e 'printf join ".", map int rand 256, 1 .. 4;'
echo sortmeplease | perl -pe 'chomp; $_ = join "", sort split //'
perl -wl -e '@f=<>; for $i (0 .. $#f) { $r=int rand ($i+1); @f[$i, $r]=@f[$r,$i] if ($i!=$r); } chomp @f; print join $/, @f;' try.txt
perl -le 'print join $/, @INC'

This will show where your Perl installation is looking for modules.

join file1.txt file2.txt > file3.txt
perl -le 'print join ", ", map { chomp; $_ } <>'

joins multiple lines to create single line with comma separated values. for example if we have an email addresses one per line (copy&paste from spreadsheet) it will oputput one line with comman separated addresses to put it to email client.
