NAME

       split - split a file into pieces

SYNOPSIS

       split [ option ...  ] [ file ]

DESCRIPTION

       Split  reads  file  (standard  input by default) and writes it in pieces of 1000 lines per
       output file.  The names of the output files are xaa, xab, and so on to xzz.   The  options
       are

       -n n   Split into n-line pieces.

       -l n   Synonym for -n n, a nod to Unix's syntax.

       -e expression
              File divisions occur at each line that matches a regular expression; see regexp(7).
              Multiple -e options may appear.  If a subexpression of expression is  contained  in
              parentheses  (...),  the  output file name is the portion of the line which matches
              the subexpression.

       -f stem
              Use stem instead of x in output file names.

       -s suffix
              Append suffix to names identified under -e.

       -x     Exclude the matched input line from the output file.

       -i     Ignore case in option -e; force output file names (excluding the suffix)  to  lower
              case.
