Help with 'tail' command!
I'm writing a simple bash script, and I need help with the 'tail' command; ok first of all I execute the 'ls' command and I pipe it to the 'tail' one with this option '-n N' where N is the number of lines I want to display.
Now the point is the I need the FIRST N lines and not the LAST ones; I read in the 'man' of tail that if I use '+' before the number of lines I want to see. It doesn't work. Here it is:
ls -l | tail -n +5
Ok, this is not running. Anyone can help?
