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.
