How to split multiple records file in n files

Hello,

Each record has a lenght of 7 characters
I have 2 types of records 010 and 011
There is no character of end of line.

For example my file is like that :

010hello 010bonjour011both 011sisters

I would like to have 2 files

010.txt (2 records)

hello
bonjour

and

011.txt (2 records)

both
sisters

Thank you for you help. I am a beginner in Unix.

Best regards

Try this:

Code:
awk '{for(i=1;i<=length;i+=10) print substr($0,i+3,7) > substr($0,i,3)".txt"}'

Regards
