       --additional-suffix=SUFFIX
	      append an additional SUFFIX to file names

       -b, --bytes=SIZE
	      put SIZE bytes per output file

       -C, --line-bytes=SIZE
	      put at most SIZE bytes of lines per output file

       -d, --numeric-suffixes[=FROM]

       SIZE  is  an integer and optional unit (example: 10M is 10*1024*1024).  Units are K, M, G,
       T, P, E, Z, Y (powers of 1024) or KB, MB, ... (powers of 1000).

       CHUNKS may be: N       split into N files based on size of input K/N	output Kth  of	N
       to  stdout  l/N	    split into N files without splitting lines l/K/N   output Kth of N to
       stdout without splitting lines r/N     like 'l' but use	round  robin  distribution  r/K/N
       likewise but only output Kth of N to stdout
