The bzip2recover command will split each block of data in a bzip2 file into separate .bz2 files; you can then cat them back together to create runs of files however big you want. Even though the resulting files have bzip2 headers between blocks, bunzip2 will skip over them when extracting. -- Dan Nelson dnel...@allantgroup.com _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
