How to append a string to a file name?
 
Hi all,

I have a file named "accesslog". I have another file named "a" which contains a text string, say "Jan-10-14-29-29".

I would like to know how can I append the content of the file "a", that is "Jan-10-14-29-29" to the filename accesslog.

I am expecting an output like : "accesslogJan-10-14-29-29

Tried to do it with tr,sed etc..but couldn't. I am trying to do this within a bash script.

Thanks in advance.
