I don't understand what you're trying to do.
I thought you ware saying that you wanted to create NUM_FILES separate XML files with each output file containing the header and trailer and ~1/3 of the <BASIC>...</BASIC> tags.
But, since your input file only has one set of BASIC tags, there must be some other goal that I'm not understanding from your description.
