Split one file into 2 and renaming the file name

For example of one file:
348657856**56985897568976
N1*PR*Jasmine sdgugu
gughyug
35647856834756
REF*2U*7248
gfhgfdugs
ghdugyuigy4576
4867586
N1*PR*John ~
eghufgguigr
4975876346
REF*2U*SMIL
tfgugrt47587
CAS495787656
5687564

Open in new window



I want to spilt N1*PR*Jasmine to be:

348657856**56985897568976
N1*PR*Jasmine sdgugu
gughyug
35647856834756
REF*2U*7248
gfhgfdugs
ghdugyuigy4576
4867586
CAS495787656
5687564

Open in new window



And
N1*PR*John ~:

348657856**56985897568976
N1*PR*John ~
eghufgguigr
4975876346
REF*2U*SMIL
tfgugrt47587
CAS495787656
5687564

Open in new window



However, some files just contain one name, I want them to just leave those files alone?

And for each file that had two, I want the filename like for example if the filename was for the one above :

98475789456.5010.4676897.edi
after splitting them, I want it to show as
98475789456.5010.4676897.edi
98475789456.5010.4676897_copy.edi

Open in new window


$files = './';
$dh  = opendir($files);



$i = 5010;
while(! feof($files)) {
	$contents = stream_get_line($dh,1000,"REF*2U*");
	file_put_contents('new_file.'.$i. $contents);
	
}

I have the code above, but it doesn't seem to work with me.

Please see the answer in your other question, code reproduced below for convenience:
https://www.experts-exchange.com/questions/28966489/Split-one-file-into-2-and-renaming-the-file-name.html

If you want to learn enough PHP to write this sort of programming yourself, please start here:
https://www.experts-exchange.com/articles/11769/And-by-the-way-I-am-New-to-PHP.html

I agree with Kimputer, probably best to move your requirements for application development over into E-E Gigs.

Here's the script from the other question.  I still do not understand the file naming expectations, but this shows how to separate the information according to the rules, as I understand them so far.

N-1 and END Lines go to both files
Lines starting with N1*PR* begin a segment
Each segment goes into a file of its own, wrapped by TOP Line (1) and Lines N-1 (14) and END Line (15)

KimputerCommented:
This expert suggested creating a Gigs project.
7 lines of code won't help you if your explanation is already more than that.
You need logic for checking if splitting is needed, then actual splitting, then overwriting the original file and adding a copy, while line 1 in each file.
On top of that, seems you need to copy the last two lines to the first file as well? So yes, please start a gig
