Not long I have decided to make a compress of my archives .deb / tar.gz, on only one archive. No problem I compress, and I used split command to break that archive in many parts to (upload - backup) and works fine, but the problem is, I forgot what the format of the compress that I used. And now, I don't know how to join the parts. I can anything to do?
cat split1 split2 split3 > myfile
To find out archive format, you can use file(1).
