HjSplit for Linux

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
