Create split zip files from the command line
Authored by: Strod on Mar 21, '13 10:42:10AM
Exactly. The way to do this, after you create TheBigZipFile.zip (note that I am taking the size of each segment from the article, 4482 MB):
split -b 4482m TheBigZipFile.zip TheSegment
That will leave you with several files called TheSegmentaa, TheSegmentab, etc. To concatenate on a Mac:
cat TheSegment* > MacBigZipFile.zip
And on the DOS prompt of a Windows machine (oh, the horror!):
type TheSegment* > WinBigZipFile.zip
You can verify that all three big files are identical my getting the MD5 checksum or similar method (not sure how to do that on Windows without extra tools, though).
