    Hi. I am downloading a large file, that was segmented with split & concat into several parts. the file itself will work on OS 9, but I have found I can not use split & concat to merge it because that is apparently for OS X only.

    My question is basically can these segmented files be merged by another program that works on os 9, or am I not going to be able to merge them at all? i have only downloaded a third of the files so far and i have a long ways to go so i thought i better find out now rather than waste time and be dissapointed much later after waiting for it to finish! Many thanks!:)

    oh, i have just this second been informed that the split files will merge into DMG image! even if i could merge these files on os 9 with a program, i can't open the dmg.

    Dang it. Sorry, this post serves no purpose for anymore!:(

    I have no idea what you are saying. At any rate, there are two ways to segment archives in MacOS 9. One is to use DropStuff or Stuffit Deluxe to create a segmented Stuffit archive. The other way is to use Disk Image create a segmented disk image file. The image files created by the MacOS 9 version of Disk Copy have extension .img rather than .dmg. they may also be self-mounting image files, which have the extension .smi.
