Simple Text Splitter is an easy-to-use portable text splitter which is basically designed to split text based files such as TXT, LOG, SRT, CSV etc., into smaller chunks. The application offers a miniscule interface, allowing users to quickly set the file splitting options and begin splitting text files. Furthermore, in order to quickly join the split text files, you can choose to add .part or file number as file extension.

All the options are self explanatory, simply run it and specify the file to be broken into smaller pieces from the Open Text button. Now choose the number of chunks from the Number of chunks drop down box, then specify the destination folder for the resulting chunks by selecting the output folder. You may distinguish these chunks by adding the desired output naming style from the Naming portion. Choose any one between Add Part to file name, Add only part, or Add number as per your requirement.

  1. as others have said, not very useful at all when it can’t handle really large files.  The potential is there but no cigar for now.
