No, you don't really have to.  Its just that the best editing interface for
SC is currently Emacs, that doesn't mean you can't do anything without Emacs.

Not quite.  You need to run sclang and not scsynth.  Now sclang does
interpretation step-by-step, and if there is no input left, the program
ends, so if you just do

# sclang split.sc

It will start the server and all, but it will immediately exit again, which
is not what you want.  The trick is to specify another input source, like
stdin, so that the interpreter waits for more commands, and therefore
doesn't exit.  You can use this to control sclang by giving it
additional commands if you want.

So you do:

# sclang split.sc -

And it should work.
