The UNIX answer is: RTFM. It's all in the man page and the online
documentation. Provided the files all use the same formatting,
codecs, bitrates, and number of tracks, then it's trivial.
mkvmerge file1 +file2 -o file3

First of all, they're already compressed. Compressing them further
would cause additional loss of visual and audible quality.

That's not combining them into a single file. That's linking them.
You can manually craft a chapter listing for the videos, then make
each "file" a different chapter in the file. QuickTime has a feature
where it creates one file that links to the other ones, which is
similar to what you're asking for (actually, I'm not entirely sure
what you ARE asking for...).
