-utility concatenates the corresponding lines of the given input files,
-and writes the resulting lines to standard output. The default operation
-concatenates the corresponding lines of the input files.
-The newline of every line except the line from the last input file is
-replaced with a tab.
-If an end-of-file condition is detected on one or more input files,
-but not all input files,
-behaves as though empty lines were read from the files on which
-end-of-file was detected, unless the
-option is specified.
-.B \-d list
-unless a backslash character appears in
-each character is an element specifying a delimiter.
-If a backslash character appears, that and one or more characters
-following it are an element specifying a delimiter.
-These elements specify one or more characters to use,
-instead of the default tab, to replace the newline of the input
-lines. The elements in

-The delimiter is reset to the first element of list after each file
-operand is processed.
-If a backslash character appears in list, it and the character following
-it represents the following delimiters:
-empty string (not a null character)
-If Any other characters follow the backslash, results are unspecified.
-concatenate all of the lines of each separate input file in command line
-order. The newline of every line except the last line in each input file

-instance of '\-'.
-.SH EXIT VALUES
-utility exits 0 on successful completion, and >0 if an error
-.SH ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES
-The following environment variables affect the execution:
-provide a default value for the internationalization variables
-that are unset or null.
-if set to a non-empty string value, override the values of all the
-other internationalization variables.
-determine the locale for the interpretation of sequences of bytes
-of text data as characters (for example, single-byte as opposed to
-multi-byte characters in arguments and input files).
-determine the locale that should be used to affect the format and
-contents of diagnostic messages written to standard error.
-.SH CONFORMING TO
-utility is IEEE Std 1003.2 (POSIX.2) compatible.
-.I "ls | paste - - - -"
-Write out a directory in four columns.
-.I "paste -s -d '\et\en' file"
-Combine pairs of lines from a file into single lines.
