When a file is very large size it takes a lot of time to download. A common solution is to zip the file to make it smaller, but if it still too large to download, splitting the file in many pieces is often a better alternative solution.

This class can compress and split large files into smaller part files that are compressed as files in a .ZIP compatible format.

Splitting the files can be done on the fly for instance when it is necessary to download a large file of Web site backup, or sending the file by email in several messages rather than sending a single message with very large attachment.

Gathering the split file pieces can be done using PKZip or WinZip.

Some types of applications need to manipulate large amounts of data, like for instance site backups, database dumps or log files.

When it is necessary to transfer large files, any method that lets you reduce the amount of time and bandwidth that it will take, may make a significant difference.

This class provides a solution that not only can try to compress large files generating .ZIP archives, but also can split them into several pieces that can be downloaded in parallel to take the most of the available bandwidth.
