Happy bunny!

Code:
#!bin/bash

y() { echo -e "\n\n" >> $compilation_file; }

echo - "Please type the path to the compilation file :"
read compilation_file
echo "Please type the original files that are going to make up the compilation file :"
read -a original_files
for i in ${original_files[*]}
do
cat $i >> $compilation_file
y
done

Success at last - I've got the for-loop working - I'd forgot the $ sign before i in cat $i - script works great now and can concatenate any number of files easily and neatly into one final file - thanks to Strike for the original pointer.

Just a little update to my script - can now put filenames straight from the array to the top of each file with a neat single blank line.

echo "$i" >> $compilation_file ; y


Code:
#!bin/bash

y() { echo -e "\n" >> $compilation_file; }
z() { echo -e "\n\n" >> $compilation_file; }

echo - "Please type the path to the compilation file :"
read compilation_file
echo "Please type the original files that are going to make up the compilation file :"
read -a original_files

for i in ${original_files[*]}
do
echo "$i" >> $compilation_file ; y
cat $i >> $compilation_file ; z
done
