'MPLAB downloading (any way to break the 1.9M to fi'

I have tried downloading MPLAB and have followed some of the problems
you people have encountered. The only apparent problem I have, is the size
of the zipped file. Its 1.9Meg I would like to divide it up into
two files so I can put them on floppies, and then install them at home.
Anyone know how this could be done in Unix or suggest an alternative.
Downloading it from the net at home would take forever. Does microchip
offer this software of floppies, who can I call to get a copy on disks?

Hi;

You can write a simple program in c to read the file and divide it into
two pieces (just read and update a counter until you hit 1.4M, then switch
output to  another file). At home, use "copy /b file1+file2" (assuming DOS)
or you could probably "cat >>" them if you use a UNIX variant...

Hope this helps...

You can use BACKUP or  MSBACKUP DOS utilites to span disks if those
utilities are avilable to you.  It's a bit of a pain to use but that's how I
did it.

I've a C program that splits files up in UNIX.  The resulting files can
then be rebuilt into the original using the DOS COPY command as someone
else suggested.

Please e-mail me if you want the source code (or the SUN SPARC binary)

Newest version of PKZIP will span floppies as will DOS BACKUP. Not
sure about TAR or COMPRESS on UNIX.

Neil...

  If you UUENCODE it will be broken up into a series of individually smaller
files 8^) .  You can then copy some of these two one floppy, the remaining
files to another.
