I am really sorry i forgot to mention "which language". I don't have knowledge of perl, can you give a script in C shell or similar shells

If you have Perl installed on your machine, then this code will work in any shell (including C shell).

Through sed..
sed 's/ \(..\)/ $\1/g;s/.$/& >file&/g' inputfile

$ x=0;while read line; do x=$(echo "$x" + 1 | bc); echo "$line > file$x"; done < inputfile
scr1 a1 > file1
scr2 a2 b2 > file2
scr3 a3 b3 c3 > file3
