An example we had to do for a quick in class activity was writing a program
to student names (in a text files) into a list and print out their
respective grades (in another text file). With output like this:

Joe 89
Bob 25
Mary 100

I quickly overcame the assignment with:

paste names.txt grades.txt

My professor responded by saying "you are doing it the wrong way".

It's preposterous to not use the tools given to us by unix gods.
