You can use the linux bash core utility split
split -b 1M -d file.txt file
Note that M or MB both are OK but size is different. MB is 1000 * 1000, M is 1024^2
If you want to separate by lines you can use -l parameter.
a=(`wc -l yourfile`) ; lines=`echo $(($a/12)) | bc -l` ; split -l $lines -d file.txt file
Another solution as suggested by Kirill, you can do something like the following
split -n l/12 file.txt
Note that is l not one, split -n has a few options, like N, k/N, l/k/N, r/N, r/k/N.
