I remember this being asked before and although I've never used this plugin, I believe it might help.
After joining the paths, try Object>Path>Simplify... with the Curve Precision slider at 100%, the Angle Threshold at zero, Straight Lines off.
And where are those scripts??
Click on the link James provided, where it says "this page".
Thanks, link is there, but someone must see it (me!)
James' scripts work just fine for me, but I still don't know why plugin concatenate does not work under CS4.
I get error message
Error: 1394689636, suite: AI Art Suite, version: 9!
Some suggestions, please.
did you input the 8000 pairs of x,y coordinates MANUALLY ?
I'm asking because I don't understand why a SEQUENCE of
points can lead to unconnected line segments.
If the data are given in an ASCII file, then one needs some
ten lines of code to create a plain PostScript EPS for the
polyline, which is readable and editable by AI.
Just for the case that you have to do this once again (an
example is available).

Thanks for the posts here...this is my exactly problem today also. Many programs do this segment by unconnected segment line path specification for some reason, from cad & mapping programs to Microsoft excel graphs. As a novice to Illustrator I am also unhappy to see how unresponsive Adobe is to customer feedback, as after spending some time looking through this Forum tonight I see that there are many basic issues that folks have been complaining about for several versions now. Not a good sign when users have to write the program for Adobe to get a functional work environment. I have held on to my old version of Freehand for about as long as I can, but an being pushed off by windows upgrades on most machines that I have avalible, so I guess need to switch....but to Illistrator?
