SPLITIT VERSION 1.01 (SPLITIT.CPP)

Splitit is a file utility built to process fixed length
files in several specific ways but you must have a VGA or better
display, and a 80286 or better CPU for it to run properly. First
you must supply it with an input filename, either by way of the
first command line parameter or by pressing the "File open"
button. It is then ready to do any or all of several different
functions: check to ensure that the file is fixed length,
calculate record length, count the number of records, and split
it into multiple files. This can all be accomplished by supplying
it with the proper command line, for example:
splitit test.txt testout 4
This would split test.txt into four files called testout.1 through
testout.4 with any odd records left over put into the last file.
I originally wrote this program for use at my job, where we
do quite a bit of manipulation of fixed length files as well as
"Paradox " databases.
Planned future enhancements include adding the ability to
process "Paradox" files, split files based on criteria in some
"field" in the record, Dump several fixed length files from
"Paradox" based on some criteria, and anything else useful that I
can think of.
This program is the result of my first serious programming
attempt in C++ and on the whole I think it is quite usefull
(although perhaps a bit overboard on bells and whistles). I would
appreciate any useful comments that you the user can provide.
