Filenames made by Splitter

Splitter will create lots of small files based on your large one(s).

It creates new filenames on the following basis:

A folder based on the name of the source file is created. Sub-folders are created if there are too many files for a folder.

If a title is detected, each file will contain the title plus a number and .txt. If there is no title, the filename will be the number + .txt added as a file extension.

Thus a large file called HELLO.DAT will split up into a number of small ones:








1.        Splitter will start numbering at 1 each session.

2.        Note that the small files will probably take up a lot more room than the original large file did. This is because the disk operating system has a fixed minimum file size. A one-character text file will require this minimum size, which will probably be several thousand bytes in size. Even so, I suggest you keep your text files such that each file is a separate text, by using Splitter. When doing word lists and key words lists, though, do them in batches.

3.        CD-ROM files when copied to your hard disk may be read-only. You can change this attribute using Text Converter.
