  chunker 
 
    A  program  like  {Unix}'s  split"  which  breaks  an 
  input  file  into  parts  usually  of  a  pre-set  size,  e.g.  the 
  maximum  size  that  can  fit  on  a  {floppy}.  The  parts  can  then 
  be  assembled  with  a  {dechunker},  which  is  usually  just  the 
  chunker  in  a  different  mode.
