LX Split is a command-line file splitter/joiner for Linux. Freeware, open-source, GPL. Fully compatible with any HJSplit


Installation is easy, just run:

make install

The program will be installed as "lxsplit" in /usr/local/bin by default. If you wish to install it elsewhere, edit the Makefile, and change the 'INSTALL_PATH'.

LXSplit is capable of splitting and merging files, with the -s and -m flags respectively.


To split a huge file into smaller pieces of 15MEG each, you would invoke the following command:

> lxsplit -s hugefile.bin 15M

Output sized can be given in (M)egabytes, (k)ilobytes and (b)ytes.

Merging smaller pieces into one big file is done by invoking this command:

> lxsplit -j smallfiles.bin.001

All resulting files (from either splitting or joining) will be placed in the current directory.

Use this program at your own risk. I am not responcable for any damage caused by the use of this program.

What's New in This Release:
Removed the configure stuff, so now it should compile nicely on BSD as well.
