Split a binary package into smaller pieces and reassemble the pieces, either manually or in automatic mode. The automatic mode maintains a queue of parts for reassembling.
Add part to the queue for automatic reassembly, and if all the parts are available, reassemble the package as output. Requires the use of the -o (or --output) option, as shown.
Discard parts from the automatic-assembly queue. If any packages are specified, discard only parts from those packages. Otherwise, empty the queue.
Print information about the specified part file or files to standard output.
Join the parts of a package file together from the parts specified. The default output file is package-version.deb.
List the contents of the queue of parts waiting for reassembly, giving the package name, the parts that are on the queue, and the number of bytes.
Split the package full-package into parts N of M, named prefixNofM.deb. The prefix defaults to the full-package name without the .deb extension.
Print help message and exit.
Print license information and exit.
Print version information and exit.
Specify an alternate directory dir for the queue of parts waiting for reassembly. Default is /var/lib/dpkg.
