    Simple script to delete last n lines

    Using this script i am deleting last three lines from a file

    Here in this case, my script and the file in which the lines to be deleted are in the same location.

    so simply run

    ./script or sh -x script

    so that last three lines from filename called file would be deleted.

    Note : the filename is mentioned in the script itself, if your file is in someother location just edit the script as
    "sed -i '$d' path_to_the_file_whose_lines_to_be_deleted" and run the script.

    how to using the script,
    It's getting parameter or have to defile file path in script, or what else?
    I think, you have to give a sample to understandable.

    for example,
    should write command like following to delete last 3 lines of file.txt

    # file.txt
