Thanks for information, multiple files in splitter is a useful feature.

Unfortunately this is not a substitute for my idea. I have problems with 
splitter and big files, so I'd rather split some data separately and 
merge them at mkgmap stage. For pbf files this can be done with osmosis, 
but merging lasts about the same time as compiling with mkgmap, so I 
could save some work with the new feature in mkgmap.

And what would be really interesting for me is merging pbf with mp 
files. Or rather I should say merging OSM data with external data not 
available in pbf format. There are many free data in shp format, that I 
can easy change to mp, but not to osm/pbf, since available conversion 
tools are very limited.

Best regards
