Split large file and add header and footer to each small files

I have one large file, after every 200 line i have to split the file and the add header and footer to each small file?
It is possible to add different header and footer to each file?

You can use something like this:

Code:
awk 'END { printf "E%03d end\n", c > f }
!(NR % 200) || NR == 1 { if (f) { printf "E%03d end\n", c > f; close(f) } 
printf "E%03d start\n", ++c > (f = "file" c ".txt") }
{ print > f }' large

Use nawk or /usr/xpg4/bin/awk on Solaris.

Should they remain the same across all small files?
The code I posted generates the same start and end for every single file.

Perhaps you can adapt something like this to do what you want:

Code:
 $ split -d -l 3 temp.txt file && for X in file*; do { echo "$X start"; cat $X; echo "$X end"; } > $X.txt; done

Explanation:

Splits the file every three lines, naming each split-off file with "file" followed by digits. The for loop then takes each file, writes the "start" section, the contents of the file, then the "end" section, and names it with the same file name but with a ".txt" at the end.

Working example:

Code:
 $ cat temp.txt
