If the files are not too big, you could do something like:
with open("/home/me/Desktop/test.csv", "wb") as w:
    writer = csv.writer(w)
    for f in glob.glob("/home/me/Desktop/files/*.txt"):
        rows = open(f, "rb").readlines()


All right, but apart from the sanitation, the medicine, education, wine, public 
order, irrigation, roads, a fresh water system, and public health, what have the 
Romans ever done for us?

I have many text files, where data is delimited by space.
Each file contain three colums: coordinate x, coordinate y and value for this 

    I would like to join this data to get one big file which will contain 
coordinate x, coordinate y, value1,value2,..., value_n and save it to another 
text file.

I wrote script, but there's some stupid error (like "\n" character although
I have added .rstrip() command).

Coul You tell me what is most convenient way to join this data
(maybe by using csv module?)?
