Subject RE: Size of zip file
Date Tue, 18 Oct 2005 16:28:45 GMT
Many years ago (when floppies and sneaker net were the tranport method of
choice) there were two Unix utilities available to split a zip file into
parts and merge the parts back to a single zip file. I don't remember who
supplied them or if they are even still available. Perhaps google will
reveal what you need.

Ant >= 1.6.3 includes the <length> task which can get file sizes for you.
You could probably (a) write something or (b) find something to do the split
for you.
