No, it's the equivalent of "type" in Windows.  Much as I love the word
"catenate", it wasn't a good choice for a command name waaaaay back when
Unix was first being written.

The point is to feed your images into ffmpeg's input, where the
"image2pipe" format will interpret them correctly.  I think
substituting "type" for "cat" will work, though I'm hardly a
Windows expert.
