The -b option that takes a file with cookies can (currently) only be used
once on the command line, so if you don't wanna concatenate both files into a
third using:

$ cat file1 file2 > file3
$ curl -b file3 [URL]

You also have the option to tell curl to get the -b file from stdin like

$ cat file1 file2 | curl -b @- [URL]

And to add your own custom cookie, that is added with "-b variable=contents"
or if you wanna set several cookies "-b var1=cont1;var2=cont2;".
