I have six text files, each contain a list of email addresses, one address per line. I would like to be sure there are no duplicate email addresses among the six files. I have searched the internet for tips and tricks, and have read about comm, cmp, uniq, and diff, and have tried various commands, but I still can't seem to get the job done. Any advice from the group on this matter would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

This should do it:

[code]$ cat f1 f2 f3 f4 f5 f6 | sort | uniq[/coce]
