    public class PasteFiles
    extends AbstractFileWriter
    Generates a single file from combined lines from the input files. Line-by-line the lines get joined (separated by the specified delimiter) and output in the output file.
    This transformer works similar to the Unix 'paste' command. But instead of providing a list of delimiters, a single one is used.

    - accepts:

    Valid options are:

    -D <int> (property: debugLevel)
        The greater the number the more additional info the scheme may output to 
        the console (0 = off).
        default: 0
        minimum: 0
    -name <java.lang.String> (property: name)
        The name of the actor.
        default: PasteFiles
    -annotation <adams.core.base.BaseText> (property: annotations)
        The annotations to attach to this actor.
    -skip (property: skip)
        If set to true, transformation is skipped and the input token is just forwarded 
        as it is.
    -stop-flow-on-error (property: stopFlowOnError)
        If set to true, the flow gets stopped in case this actor encounters an error;
         useful for critical actors.
    -output <> (property: outputFile)
        The output file containing the combined content.
        default: ${CWD}
    -delimiter <java.lang.String> (property: delimiter)
        The delimiter to use for combining the lines (backquoted, e.g., use '   '
