    I'm used to using Terminal to "cat" several small transferred files into an intended larger file. Now I need to do the reverse -- take a large file and break it up into smaller ones that others can put back together. How is this done?

    Try a program called split and concat. It will split them up, and then put them back together.

    Yeah, why use Terminal when you can use Split and Concat.
