Hi there,
 
I am afraid there is no option to successfully merge files line by line using DOS commands. You can easily merge documents using the copy/b command.
 
If you have files named first.txt, second.txt and third.txt the command line goes like this:
 
copy/b first.txt +second.txt +third.txt new.txt
 
(new.txt is the new file that will be created containing all 3 documents and you can name it whatever you like)
 
For line by line merging you will need a program or a scripting language (like VBScripts, Powershell or Python).
