SYNOPSIS
       csplit [OPTION]... FILE PATTERN...

DESCRIPTION
       Output  pieces  of  FILE  separated by PATTERN(s) to files `xx01', `xx02', ..., and output
       byte counts of each piece to standard output.

       Mandatory arguments to long options are mandatory for short options too.

       -b, --suffix-format=FORMAT use sprintf FORMAT instead of %d

       -f, --prefix=PREFIX
	      use PREFIX instead of `xx'

       -k, --keep-files
	      do not remove output files on errors

       -n, --digits=DIGITS
	      use specified number of digits instead of 2

       -s, --quiet, --silent
	      do not print counts of output file sizes

       -z, --elide-empty-files
	      remove empty output files

       --help display this help and exit

       --version
	      output version information and exit

       Read standard input if FILE is -.  Each PATTERN may be:

       INTEGER
	      copy up to but not including specified line number

       /REGEXP/[OFFSET]
	      copy up to but not including a matching line

       %REGEXP%[OFFSET]
	      skip to, but not including a matching line

       {INTEGER}
	      repeat the previous pattern specified number of times

       {*}    repeat the previous pattern as many times as possible

       A line OFFSET is a required `+' or `-' followed by a positive integer.
