SplitmaStream for Linux reads an MPEG stream from stdin, writes a copy of it to a file named YYMMDD.HH-streamname.mp3 and then writes the stream to stdout. Think of it as a hourly-file-cutting 'tee' for MPEG audio. Files are switched on every hour at a frame boundary so that every file should be playable without noise at the beginning/end. SplitmaStream for Linux is useful for making an archive of an mpeg stream which is, for example, coming from an encoder and going to an icecast transmitter.
