Syntax


TG[n]

TGG / TGG

TGG is the block form of this command.


Operands


n

The number of lines to be glued. If you do not type a number, or if the number you type is 1, the line on which the TG is entered will be joined to the line following it.


Description

TG/TGG is used to glue together one or more lines as ‘logical' lines, with leading and trailing blanks trimmed off beforehand.   The lines are glued into a single line by concatenating the trimmed original lines together left to right, in order.  TG/TGG may be thought of as the Text Glue or Trimmed Glue operation.


By default, nothing is inserted between the glued lines; they are simply concatenated together.  In effect, lines are glued together with an implied zero-length string between them.


In some cases, it may be useful to specify a particular user-defined string to insert between lines.  This is now possible using the GLUEWITH primary command.  See the GLUEWITH command, and the example below, for more information.  Note that GLUEWITH is a global setting, not associated with a particular file type.


Text Gluing of lines uses the following rules:
