Splitting a single xml file into multiple xml files

Hi,
I'm having a xml file with multiple xml header. so i want to split the file into multiple files.

Sample.xml consists multiple headers so how can we split these multiple headers into multiple files in unix.

eg :

Code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<ml:individual xmlns:ml=http://www.ex xmlns >   
<id>....
....
...
</ml:sample>
 
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<ml:individual xmlns:ml="ht" 
<id>....
....
...
</ml:sample>
 
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<ml:individual xmlns:ml="htt" >
<id>....
....
...
</ml:sample>

There are many ways to achieve what you want to do. Here is one way using awk:
Code:
awk 'BEGIN {NUM=0}; /xml version="1.0"/ {NUM++; filename=NUM".xml"}; {print >filename}' infile.xml

If you prefer a utility, have a look at csplit.
