    The following form allows you to view linux man pages.

    Command:

    deb-split

    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           filename.deb
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           The  multi-part  .deb format is used to split big packages into smaller
           pieces to ease transport in small media.
    
    
    

    FORMAT

           The file is an ar archive with a magic  value  of  !<arch>.   The  file
           names might contain a trailing slash (since dpkg 1.15.6).
    
           The  first member is named debian-split and contains a series of lines,
           separated by newlines. Currently eight lines are present:
    
           ?   The format version number, 2.1 at the time  this  manual  page  was
               written.
    
           ?   The package name.
    
           ?   The package version.
    
           ?   The md5sum of the package.
    
           ?   The total size of the package.
    
           ?   The maximum part size.
    
           ?   The  current  part number, followed by a slash and the total amount
               of parts (as in '1/10').
    
           ?   The package architecture (since dpkg 1.16.1).
    
           Programs which read multi-part archives should be  prepared  for  addi-
           tional  lines  to  be  present,  and should ignore these if this is the
           case.
    
           If the version number has changed, an incompatible change has been made
           and  the program should stop. If it has not, then the program should be
           able to safely continue, unless it encounters an unexpected  member  in
           the archive (except at the end), as described below.
    
           The  second,  last required member is named data.N, where N denotes the
           part number. It contains the raw part data.
    
           These members must occur in this exact order.  Current  implementations
           should ignore any additional members after data.N.  Further members may
           be defined in the future, and (if possible) will be placed after  these
           two.
