Merge files utility

To merge several files together:
edmCopyPickMerge inputFiles=first.root,second.root,third.root outputFile=output.root
To merge several files one can dump the whole list of input files into a text file and then call merge utility:
edmCopyPickMerge inputFiles_load=listOfInputFiles.txt outputFile=output.root
where listOfInputFiles.txt is a text file containing a list of input files (one file per line).

Important: When giving local files as input, the file names must be prefixed by file:.
For example, first.root would be written file:first.root.
