TBCONCAT is a simple task which accepts a list of APPHOT/DAOPHOT STSDAS database files and concatenates them into one resultant database. TBCONCAT checks that all the file are indeed APPHOT/DAOPHOT STSDAS database files and that they were all written by the same task before performing the concatenation.
TBCONCAT is a simple script built around the STSDAS TABLES package task TMERGE. Users should consult the manual page for TMERGE for more details about the inner working of the task.
