       split [OPTION]... [INPUT [PREFIX]]

       Output  fixed-size  pieces of INPUT to PREFIXaa, PREFIXab, ...; default
       size is 1000 lines, and default PREFIX is 'x'.  With no INPUT, or  when
       INPUT is -, read standard input.

       Mandatory  arguments  to	 long  options are mandatory for short options

       -a, --suffix-length=N
	      generate suffixes of length N (default 2)

	      append an additional SUFFIX to file names

       -b, --bytes=SIZE
	      put SIZE bytes per output file

       -C, --line-bytes=SIZE
	      put at most SIZE bytes of lines per output file

       -d, --numeric-suffixes[=FROM]
	      use numeric suffixes instead of  alphabetic;  FROM  changes  the
	      start value (default 0)

       -e, --elide-empty-files
	      do not generate empty output files with '-n'

	      write to shell COMMAND; file name is $FILE

       -l, --lines=NUMBER
	      put NUMBER lines per output file

       -n, --number=CHUNKS
	      generate CHUNKS output files; see explanation below

       -u, --unbuffered
	      immediately copy input to output with '-n r/...'

	      print a diagnostic just before each output file is opened

       --help display this help and exit

	      output version information and exit

       SIZE  is	 an  integer and optional unit (example: 10M is 10*1024*1024).
       Units are K, M, G, T, P, E, Z, Y (powers of 1024) or KB, MB, ...	 (pow‐
       ers of 1000).

       CHUNKS  may  be:	 N	 split into N files based on size of input K/N
       output Kth of N to stdout l/N	 split into N files without  splitting
       lines  l/K/N    output  Kth  of N to stdout without splitting lines r/N
       like 'l' but use round robin distribution  r/K/N	   likewise  but  only
       output Kth of N to stdout
