Note that the portable and standard way to paste with no
separator is:

paste -d '\0' odd even

(no, it doesn't insert NUL characters).

not

paste -d '' odd even

which is not standard and won't work with all paste
implementations.

With traditional paste implementations:

$ paste -d '' a b
paste: no delimiters
