I'm dumping an svn repository to a giant USB disk that is formatted FAT due to necessity (treat this as unchangeable).
It conks out when you try to create a file larger than 4 gb.
I need a tool that I can pipe data to that will create files of arbitrary size that when catted together will be the original file. I can write a tool to do this, but if one already exists I'd rather use it.
EDIT: A second look at the split man page looks like it might work.
