I should get what I want. However it doesn't work, vile doesn't seem

You want a lower-case "j", i.e. the ex join command.
No, that doesn't work, I tried it. I think (see my further postings)
that only a few commands work with :g and join isn't one of them.
You can see the available commands by doing a name-completion (usually
double-tab). vile checks the command after it's read, to see if it has
the GLOBOK flag (internal) set. It would be nicer if it only prompted
for the names that have the flag set...
