Is there a Linux command that will split up a large text file into several smaller text files?

Yes, you can use 'split' to split up files.
Basic usage: split filename.txt
For options see: man split
(press q to exit, space to scroll)
You can of course also compress text files if they're too big;
zip zipfilename filename.txt
(there are of course more options)
