Data Glue is the best solution to glue file parts (.001, .002, .003 etc.) together on a Mac. These file parts are usually shared on filehosters like RapidShare, if the orginal file is too large. Data Glue is HJSplit compatible and works with all common file part formats.

OK so this is a review.

Data Glue works great.

It works on 10.6

It is drag and drop.

It does exactly what it says it will.

It is fast, clean and easy. And it is free.

Data Glue takes a useful feature, normally only accessible via Terminal, and brings it blinking into the daylight of the GUI.

By using a Drop Zone on the app window to select files for processing, this app stands out from alternatives such as split&concat (though that has more output options).

The only improvement I could suggest is to offer a dialogue to change the output folder. The inexpensive MacAppStore version may even have this for all I know.

Oh, of course you could use terminal commands to split and concatenate files if you want to...

But unless you see the world in hexadecimal, your fingers are welded to the keyboard and you consider mice and trackpads to be devilish affectations that won't ever catch on, why bother with the command line to achieve only some of what this app does..?

Or you could drag files to this lovely little app that just works.

Your choice.

It's simple enough to do the same in terminal.app. Just make sure there are no extra junk files around, such as a foo.mpg.sfv, and then..

"cat foo.mpg.* > foo.mpg"

I don't get why people want to show off their terminal knowledge to strangers when they are meant to be reviewing an app.

Pen_sq has said nothing, absolutely noting, about this app.

If the dev were charging silly money for something that is free via terminal, maybe we'd be interested in the fact that you do it by pretending you're still using a Commodore 64...

But when somebody has wrapped a GUI around the process and made it shiny and friendly it so real living humans with jobs and social lives can easily use it and *is giving it away for free*....

...it really is incredibly vain, arrogant and offensive to say how you do it via terminal instead of leaving a review of the app!

I apologize for having pointed out, three years ago, that core MacOS may not be as shallow and powerless as you wish it to be. My therapist keeps admonishing me to be less subtle and quick to anger, so that's the last I'll say on the subject.
