split: Split a file into fixed-size pieces
split creates output files containing consecutive sections of
input (standard input if none is given or input is
split [option] [input [prefix]]
split puts 1000 lines of input (or whatever is
left over for the last section), into each output file.
The output files' names consist of prefix (`x' by default)
followed by a group of letters `aa', `ab', and so on, such
that concatenating the output files in sorted order by file name produces
the original input file. (If more than 676 output files are required,
split uses `zaa', `zab', etc.)
The program accepts the following options. Also see section Common options.
Go to the first, previous, next, last section, table of contents.
