Hi,

on Linux there is a single command to do file splitting. Try
Code:
man split
.

To uncompress, you do this, lets assume that you have split the files to files.tar.gz.partaa, files.tar.gz.partab, files.tar.gz.partac, etc

cat files.part* | gunzip | tar xvf -

It always helps to read the man pages :-) doesn't it?

zipsplit [-hiLpst] [-n size] [-b path] zipfile

Use p7zip, it supports volumes for both zip and 7z formats.

Normally I'd agree w/ you, but neither the zipsplit man page on my MEPIS 7 box nor the one at die.net, has an entry explaining "-n size". We might guess that when zip is invoked as zipsplit, that the "-n size" option tells it the maximum desired size of the compressed pieces; but I can't find where the man page actually says this.

split -b 5000000 file.zip file.zip command splits the file.zip into a bunch of the files of 5000000 bytes each named file.zipaa to file.zipzz. To unzip them you need first to concatenate them into zip file using the command cat file.zip?? > newfile.zip.

zipsplit -n 5000000 file.zip command splits file.zip into a bunch of zip files named file1.zip, file2.zip, and so on. The number after -n switch should be greater than the size of the biggest file stored in the original file.zip. The resulting zip files are independent -- you can unzip them separately.

I used zipsplit -h command and tested the behavior of the program. Some man page you'll find there: http://www.manpagez.com/man/1/zipsplit/. It's similar to the output of zipsplit -h.
