name
   decat: break a file into 10 files

synopsis
   decat(input: in, decatp: in,
         f0,f1,f2,f3,f4,f5,f6,f7,f8,f9: out,
         output: out)

files
   input:  multiple line detailed description of file 1, etc

   decatp: parameters.  one integer, the number of bytes to put into
     each file.

   fx: input split into parts f1..fx
       Empty files are not written!
   output: messages to the user

description

   Break a file into parts.  Any excess goes into the last file.
   The files are split at the next line after the size given in decatp
   has been exceeded.  This avoids broken lines, but it means that the
   user must leave a safety.

   Purpose: to be able to send files larger than 50000 bytes.
   The mailer at boulder objects to ones larger.
   Test for correctness: cat f0 ... f9 >x; diff of input and x should be empty.

author
   Thomas Dana Schneider

bugs
   fixed number of files.
