Any way to use ffmpeg to append video clips from same video

mencoder suggestion works well.
But I was wondering Can ffmpeg combine clips with same characteristics or is it only for transcoding ?

looks like ffmpeg cannot be used to combine clips taken from same video.It would have been great to do all actions with powerful ffmpeg.Does Anyone know way of combining clip in ffmpeg ?
