You can use the split command
Something like 'split -b 1400K access.log'
Do 'man split' to check this options.
This will brake the file into xaa xab, xac ....
Then in Windows just copy all files to one directory and issue ' copy /A
xaa+xab+xac+... access.log'

Hope this been helpful

Subject: [SQU] Copying log file


I have ACCESS.LOG files that seems pretty big. I tried copying it to a
floppy disk (1.44 MB). I thought that my access.log is 1,38 MB, but I am
wrong. I just realized that LINUX can copy as much as size of destination
media, and leave the rest.

1. Would you tell me how break and copy all size of file in several floppy
disks? Then I can encapsulate to one file in my other computer.

2. How can I transfer the access.log file to Windows environment?

3. Can I limit the size of my access.log file (let's say 5 MB)? So, It will
never exceed the maximum limit.

Many thanks for your help.
