Output of file : BREAKFIL.DOC contained in archive : BREAKFIL.ZIP

Break an ASCII input file into a number of n-line output files.

usage: BREAKFIL [infile] [n] [tempdisk]

where infile is in the current default directory,
n is number of lines per output file, and tempdisk
is an intermediate disk used to avoid thrashing. (tempdisk
should be different disk from one infile is on, and preferably
should be a Virtual RAM Disk).

You can create a 128 k byte Virtual RAM Disk by putting the line:
device=c:\dos\vdisk.sys size 128 k, sector 512, dir entries = 16
in your \config.sys file and rebooting your PC.

example: BREAKFIL C:ALLFILES.LST 1000 D:

This will break the file allfiles.lst into a number of 1000 line files.
Each output file will have a filename of brokenf.x where x is the
file number, i.e. brokenf.1 ... brokenf.999
