fdsplitscript described below.
fdsplit Bourne shell script splits the file to
be saved into 1.4 megabyte floppy-sized chunks, then guides
you through the process of inserting the disks and copying
the chunks to the disks.
The script creates a restore Bourne shell script and writes
it to each floppy in the set of disks in the backup.
By running any one of these copies of the restore script, the
saved file will be reconstituted.
The restore script, like the
guides you through the process of successive disk insertions
to restore the file.
usage: fdsplit [ -b binary_size -p new_prefix ] file_prefix splits a file into 1418k byte pieces, then constructs two scripts, a save script and a restore script. The save script guides you through the sequence of disk insertions to save the pieces of the file to floppies. The restore script guides you through the sequence of disk insertions to copy the pieces of the file from floppies to hard disk, and then reconstitutes the file. The save script is named file_prefix.sav and the restore script is named file_prefix.rst. Both scripts are copied to each floppy. 'binary_size' is the max size of each disk. default: 1418k 'new_prefix' is the prefix to use in creating the storage files 'file_prefix' is the root of the filename of the file to be split for the file 'goo.tar.gz', file_prefix is 'goo' If the suffix of the file is neither '.tgz' nor '.tar.gz', then you will be prompted for the file suffix.
