What sort of file do you want to divide?  And using what criteria?

When saying dividing and combine, do you mean something like zipping?

Maybe you can use something to zip (http://www.xceedsoft.com/).

If you want to split the file,you may read it into Binary,and put it into a variable then get the Binary code to severals,then save every part.
To combine is the same way, read every part of the file,and put it into a variable in order,save it.

prefix, it is impossible for us to know what huanxiong wants, so how on earth can you pretend to know the answer to the question? Please retract it.

No, I don't agree. If you think the number of points is not sufficient (and in this case I agree, they aren't), then don't answer the question. But don't answer it with an answer that may well be wrong.

huanxiong,

You still haven't told us what exactly you are trying to achieve. We still don't know what you're talking about....

Please reject prefix' answer, by the way...

....and increase your points. 10 is an insult.

There is no point in trying to chop up a .EXE file as the file will be useless once you have done so. If you're trying to *copy* a large .EXE from one system to another simply use a tool like PKZIP that will span floppys when creating a .ZIP file. You can create a multi-disk .ZIP file containing your .EXE that can be expanded at the far end. This is free and works with no coding effort.

Increase the points to at least 50.
