HxD: file split option to split at record separator

Post by jlsimonsen » 29 Sep 2007 21:04

when a file is split into multiple files please split at the record separator. also allow a specification of lines so that files can be split at something line 5000 or 10000 lines/rows.

Also considering the e-mail you sent me, you would like an extension of the current file splitting tool, such that you can split a file into smaller files given one of the following:
  • a size for the partial files (only option ATM)
  • a delimiter/separator (hex code or string)
  • linebreaks (special case of option above)
Right?

That and:
  • a list of sizes for partial files, with the last listitem being used for files from the remaining data.
  • a special listitem/s for my above suggestion that stops splitting and either saves the remaining data to a single file or doesn't handle the remaing data. (E.g: <ToEnd> to save remaining data as a single file, <StopHere> to not handle the remaining data.)
Special case option of the first option :wink:
