Question about copying lines from Ascii file

Dear *,

I just have a question regarding copying ascii file's content.

I need to copy part of contents (e.g from line 382 to line 582) from a log file which is ASCII format.

Is there any command to copy line 382 to line 582 to another file?

Thanks and RGDS

sed -n '382,582 p' logfile.log >destfile.log

should work.
