Split a large file into smaller files and then integrate them to get the original file
How do I split a 7GB (movie) file into smaller files of (say) 1GB, and then (in another Ubuntu computer) integrate them to get the original file (using just bash commands)?
split -b 1G -d bigfile bigfile-part
cat bigfile-part* > bigfile
To split the file into 1024MBs, using a terminal:
split --bytes=1024m original_filename /destination/path/prefix
To get the original file:
cat /source/path/prefix* > original_filename
