Unix Ksh split command

I am new to unix.

I have the following code to grep the word "System" from my Test.jav and split the output to multiple files of 2 lines each.
My code is :

grep 'System' | split -l 2

which splits correctly and fill the output in the files from the split command xaa, xab,xac...etc.

I want to have my own name in the files like test1,test2,test3 etc.

Please help

csplit might be a better one to use... check its man page.

There are only two hard things in computer science: cache invalidation, naming things, and off-by-one errors
