Issues dealing with large text files? Use a file splitter App!

I've been dealing with bulk data recently, CSV files of around 500mb or more. These can seriously stress out your pc. In the process of trying to write data import scripts I found an application that has proven its worth a few times over. This application allows you to split text files at points of your choosing.

File Splitter Pro, from wonderwebware. It doesn't look amazing, and it has a relatively simple interface, but after going through three or four alternatives that for the most part couldn't even open a 500mb csv file this has come through every time. What I really like though is the function that allows you to select N number of lines and move them to another file.

There is a trial version available too:

(P.S I don't get commission or anything.)
