QuickSplit Version 1.0

Have you ever needed to split a very large file into smaller ones for easier transport (via diskette) or email? If so, then this utility may just be the answer to your problems!!

As you can see from the screen shot above, QuickSplit is a utility that has two modes: Split File and Merge File. When you select the Split file radio button, you can also specify that the source file be deleted after it is split (into files each of approximately 1.4 megabytes). Each file will have the following naming convention:

n_<source file name> 
where n=the sequential number of the split file set

The Merge file option is then used to merge your split files. Notice that you can also specify that all of the split files be automatically deleted once the merge has been successfully completed.

Source Code

The completely documented code for QuickSplit is included below for your learning.
