Can anyone recommend a program that can create a multi part tar file?
I need to cut a 300 meg file dwn to 10 meg chunks

What platform are you starting from? UNIX/Linux or Winders?

So you can mail it to yourself? ;)

Install Cygwin and then you can use "split". I think there are probably similar native Wynderz utilities. Then use copy /b file + file ... to re-combine them.

Probably easier to write a batch file for that second part......

Can you do numerological incrementation in batch files (n+1)?

Winrar will import a tar file, and split it. But, the end files will be rar or zip files.

7zip should be able to do it

WinRAR will split a large file up as long as you use the .rar option. You can specify the size of the chunks too I believe.
