Concatenating RDF Turtle files


When you have a series of *.ttl files in a directory and you want to cat them all together, you need to make sure you strip out the @prefix and only prepend it once to the output.

Use the following commands

# run *in* the directory with the TTL files
head -n 50 -q *.ttl | grep '^@prefix' | sort -u > header
time cat *.ttl | grep -v '^@prefix' | cat header - | gzip > $(basename $(pwd)).ttl.gz
rm header
