Following up to myself...
}perl -ni.bak -e 'print unless 1..4' file1 file2 file3
You can only use file1 in this instance, since $. is cumulative and
doesn't reset on a new file.
For things that don't rely on a counter (e.g. a search-and-replace), the
multiple-file version works just fine.
"perldoc perlrun" for more details on the -i switch.
