// The "SplitVideo.001" and "SplitVideo.002" files have been created
// Delete the source file ("Video.avi")
fDelete("Video.avi")

Syntax
<Result> = fSplit(<File name> , <Maximum size> [, <Output file> [, <Option> [, <Progress bar>]]])
<Result>: Integer
  • Number of created files,
  • 0 if an error occurred. To find out the error details, use ErrorInfo associated with the errMessage constant.
<File name>: Character string (with quotes)
Full name of file to split.
<Maximum size>: Integer
Maximum size (in bytes) of each created file. This size must be greater than 0.
<Output file>: Optional character string (with quotes)
Full path of files to create. The created files will correspond to the specified name followed by a ".xxx" extension where xxx corresponds to the subscript of the created file.
By default, <Output file> corresponds to <File name>.
<Option>: Optional Integer constant
The source file is kept during the split operation. You have the ability to specify the following split option:
fDeleteSourceThe source file will be deleted as the split operation goes along.
Caution: If an error occurs, the source file will be LOST and it cannot be retrieved.
<Progress bar>: Optional character string (with or without quotes)
Name of Progress Bar control, used to show the progress of split operation.
Remarks
  • fOpen cannot be used on a multi-part file. Before using fOpen, the source file must be re-created by fMerge.
    Note: fOpen used on a part allows you to access the sub-file corresponding to the part.
  • The function will return an error if an existing file and one of the sub-files to create have the same name.
  • The number of files that can be created cannot exceed 10 000.
