Split a .csv File into Multiple Files

Hi guys,

I have a requirement where i need to split a .csv file into multiple files.
Say for example i have data.csv file and i have splitted that into multiple files based on some conditions i.e first file should have 100, last file 50 and other files 1000 each. Am passing the values in command line arguments say ./samp.sh 100 50 1000..
I need to check the following conditions in which i got stuck

1) If the file has 1000 records in it will not split further
2) Any file greater than 1000 records will be split

how to achieve this, pls guide me through

Thanks in advance.
