lxSplit is a simple tool for splitting files and joining the splitted files on unix-like platforms, such as Linux, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, etc. It is fully compatible with the HJSplit freeware utility which is available for other operating systems.
Splitting is done without compression.
lxSplit splits and merges files with the -s and -j flags respectively. Starting with version 0.2.1, lxSplit can handle large files (>= 4 GB) both when splitting and joining.
To split a big file into smaller pieces of 15 MB each, run the following command:
lxsplit -s hugefile.bin 15M
Output size can be given in (M)egabytes, (k)ilobytes and (b)ytes.
To merge (join) the already split pieces into the original big file, run this command:
lxsplit -j smallfiles.bin.001
All resulting files (from either splitting or joining) will be placed in the current directory.
