Reading from a file

Posted 03-17-2008 at 01:13 PM by chakjoy

I have a file test.txt like the following:

Name | ID | Details | Comment
data1 data2 data3 data4
data5 data6 data7 data8
data9 data10 data11 data12

I want to read from this file from the second row (where the actual data lies) as follows:

while read line
do
echo $line >> $out_file
done < test.txt

How can I do that?
