hjsplit alternative for fedora 13

Hi,

I got some big files that were split up on windows with hjsplit.
I've tried to install it (hjsplit 2.3) on fedora 13, but it needs kylix. Kylix in turn needs Xfree86-libs.
That's when I gave it up...

So, my question would be, whether there's a good alternative I can use to stick the files together?
Or, does anybody know where I can find a newer version of hjsplit/kylix.

Cheers,
Gyula

Re: hjsplit alternative for fedora 13

Well, I may be mistaken, but I don't think hjsplit actually does anything with the files (except split them of course). So you should be able to just cat them together:
Code:
cat file.001 file.002 [any more parts...] > file
That could save you the trouble of installing anything. But I'm not 100% percent sure HJSplit doesn't try any vendor lock-in tricks by putting some custom header at the start of each part, which would make this not work. Let me know how it turns out,

Re: hjsplit alternative for fedora 13

I've used "cat" as described by bepaald on files split by hjsplit a numbers of times without any problems. Just one addition:

Code:
 cat file.* > file
works also and you don't have to name each file separately.

Re: hjsplit alternative for fedora 13

Thanks everybody.
I've found JJSplit, that is a little java app, that does the job, although I found it a bit awkward to use, but if cat works it's more convenient and easer to use.

Thanks again,
Gyula
