/* this is for catting multilog style @[timestamp] files. */

 *   $ cat @40000000447* current
 * then the shell will sort this alphabetically, which will sort
 * @40000000447a before @400000004470, thus messing up the time stamps.
 * If you use hcat instead of cat, hcat will sort these file names
 * hexadecimally and exec cat */
