Ok Great quick responses.

Andy Bach  recommended dd because it was only one file

Mike Salehi recommended gnutar on both sides.  (so obvious, I feel silly)

Bob Metcalf recommended `split` then `cat` to reassemble.

Well done thanks for the quick responses.




I have a .dmp file that is 18 gig, I need to transfer to HP-UX, and want to
tar it onto tape to extract it.  Is there any trick I can use so that I
dont get nailed on a tar file size limit?  I thought there was a 9 gig tar
ball limit.

Thanks in advance
