SPLITB(1) BSD Reference Manual SPLITB(1)
splitb - split a file bytewise into pieces
splitb [-dhkq] [-B bufsiz] [-b blocksize] [-t template] [-w width] [file]
The splitb utility reads the given file (or from standard input, if no file is specified) and breaks it into smaller files at defined byte boun- daries. The operation of splitb is controlled by the following options: -B bufsiz Set the size of the buffer to bufsiz. Default is 1048576 (1 MiB). -b blocksize Set the size of the file to blocksize buffers of bufsiz each. De- fault is 1. -d Toggle the use of decimal respective sedecimal sequence numbers. Default is sedecimal. -h Display a verbose synopsis. -k Set bufsiz to 1024 (1 KiB). -q Be quiet during operation. -t template Specify pathname which is prepended to generated files. Default is "split". template is followed by a dot and three (width) sede- cimal numbers (000-FFF) as sequence number; if more than 4096 (16^3) files are to be generated, it simply runs off unless the -w option is used. -w width Specify the number of sedecimal digits to append, in the range from 1 to PATH_MAX - 2 - strlen(template). Default is 3. An additional argument specified is used as the name of the input file which is to be split.
