Dear Omar Bautista:

In the new analysis, this would be the grammar if you would wish to 
append the four files a.epx, b.epx, c.epx, d.epx and to sa ve them to a 
new file abcd.epx that you can then use henceforth:

read "a.epx";
append !fn := "b.epx";
append !fn := "c.epx";
append !fn := "d.epx";

save "abcd.epx" !replace;

Best regards,
