Linux to the rescue yet again. I needed to join some avi files
together, end on end. I did a Google and found lots of
shareware/download-ware utilities for Windows for doing the job. All
wanted money. Of course I thought, "This is dumb. There has to be a
Linux command-line tool for this." One of the Google results mentioned
avicat on Linux. Part of Mplayer's transcode suite. I knew I had
transcode installed but avicat didn't exist. So I went, "$
avi<tab><tab>" and lo and behold the command avimerge appeared and
looked promising. After a quite man read it became clear that this was
exactly what I wanted and I set about "fixing" my avi files. Hurrah!
