Cat $str1 $str2 is WRONG - cat command will need file names as input

There are two different ways to do the same.1. var1 = "first"var2 = "second"var3 = $var1$var2The only problem with the above solution is you can not attach the general text at hte end or in between of the text to create new string as variable which is not present so it will give an error.BEST SOLUTION IS:2. var1 = "first"var2 = "second"var3 = ${var1}$var2This will also work. In addtion to this, if you want to add some general text, you can add.ex. var3 = $var1${var2}thisistestaddditionthe var3 will be firstsecondthisistestadddition
