Description Steve Coile 2000-04-04 11:33:09 EDT
To quote the split(1) man page:

>       ../src/split [OPTION] [INPUT [PREFIX]]

Note the reference to "../src/".  Same thing with csplit(1).
Comment 1 Philip Rowlands 2000-04-06 13:39:59 EDT
This bug affects all programs in the textutils package.

These are:
cat, cksum, comm, csplit, cut, expand, fmt, fold, head, join, md5sum, nl, od,
paste, pr, ptx, split, sort, sum, tac, tail, tr, tsort, unexpand, uniq and wc.
