 Split binary files into 2 files of different size (or eliminate some bytes from the start)
I would like to split a big (>6GB) binary file into two sections of
different size. This is why I cannot use "split".

Since I pasically have to eliminate an initial part of the file, it
would be enough if I could have a command to erase a certain exact
number of bits (or, at least, bytes) from the beginning of the binary
file.

Thanks for your help.

Marco
