SPLIT(I)                     1/15/73                     SPLIT(I)


     split - split a file into pieces


     split -n [ file [ name ] ]


     Split reads file and writes it  in  n-line  pieces  (default

     1000),  as  many  as  necessary, onto a set of output files.

     The name of the first output file is name with aa  appended,

     and  so on lexicographically.  If no output name is given, x

     is default.

     If no input file is given, or if - is given  in  its  stead,

     then the standard input file is used.
