2.1.2 Splitting output
Save the archive to files `PREFIX.01' through `PREFIX.NNN' instead
of standard output. This option _must_ be used when the `-l' or
the `-L' switches are used.
When PREFIX contains any `%' character, PREFIX is then interpreted
as a `sprintf' format, which should be able to display a single
decimal number. When PREFIX does not contain such a `%'
character, the string `.%02d' is internally appended.
Limit the output file size to SIZE times 1024 bytes but don't
split input files. This allows the recipient of the shell archives
to unpack them in any order.
Limit output file size to SIZE times 1024 bytes and split files if
necessary. The archives created with this option must be unpacked
in the correct order. If the recipient of the shell archives
wants to put all of them in a single folder, she shall save them
in the correct order for `unshar', used with option `-e', to
unpack them all at once. Note: unshar invocation.
For people used to saving all the shell archives into a single mail
folder, care must be taken to save them in the appropriate order.
For those having the appropriate tools (like Masanobu Umeda's
`rmailsort' package for GNU Emacs), shell archives can be saved in
any order, then sorted by increasing date (or send time) before
