# tar-split
Archive a large directory in manageable chunks.
## Generate
./generate large-directory/
A set of tar files called `file-[\d].tar` will be created in this directory.
## Extract
**All segments of the chunked archive must be present to untar.**
If the tar files are gzipped or otherwise compressed, uncompress them back to tarballs first. They cannot, however, be individually untarred.
The archives will be extracted relative to this directory.
