Assuming they're one at a time, tnen you can do something like:

echo -e "Line 1\nLine 2\nLine 3"

... if these lines are stored in a file already, that you're wanting to
append to some other file, then using cat is your best bet.  I am not
sure if this answers your question or not.  I'm having trouble
understanding it.
