Default How to copy and paste a large bulk of text?

Hello all

I am trying to combine two large fasta files; each of them contains thousands of reads ( around 900000 reads). The problem is when I copy one file to paste it into the other, the computer refuses to do it; it does not respond at all, and it doesn't show any sign of taking the order. I tried this on more than one computers, all of them suppose to be heavy duty machines . Does anybody know a method by which I can combine two large fasta files into one. I am using apple macintosh computers.

Many thanks

Don't copy and past, use "cat" in the terminal

Code:
cat 1.fastq 2.fastq > combined.fastq
