I am reading fields from a large file and I end up with a variable holding a string of an unfixed length (1->50000 bytes). I need a perl script that will take this long string and if it is longer than 4,000 bytes, split it into an array of strings of 4,000 bytes or less.

I accomplished it with

my $length = length($note);
if ($length >= 4000) {
      $numnotes = ($length-($length%4000))/4000;      
      for ($i = 0; $i <= $numnotes; $i++) {      
        print "Note Part ".($i+1).":".substr($note,$i2*4000,4000)."\"\n";
      }

Maybe not the best way to do it but it works.
