|Yes ... something like that should be possible. I'll have a test that way, the only other (completely different) idea I have is to convert to HEX, then use CAT ... but I havent found time yet.|
edit: the split option in TAR (using --tape-length) does work, but :
- you have to manually come in between, or find a way to script it (something is telling me that would mean re-inventing the wheel)
- you cannot use the --gzip option as he states you cannot combine --gzip and --tape-length (this would be necessary since the splitting may not be done BEFORE the compression ... if you split whilst using TAR, it MUST be compressed already, otherwise ... aaargh)
And, when recreating, it seems to work with the ... well, forgot the option name ... option.
Manually as well, of course.
