Solution: merge two files / append two files in Linux

cat file1 file2 .. fileN  > mergedfile
Note the '>' in the command: it points that the target file follows, don't forget to put it there.

If you accept that entries in the resulting file are sorted, you can use uniq to remove duplicates.

cat file1 file2 | sort | uniq > mergedfile
