Sorry, we were being 'cute'.   A standard script behead.pl might be:
#!/usr/bin/perl -w
use strict;
while (<>) {
# ignore first 4 lines
     next if 1 .. 4;
# do whatever you want w/ other lines
# reset $. - line number for multiple files
     close ARGV if eof;

}     # while <>

so, you could do:
behead.pl file1 file2 file3

Outputting to separate files is left as AEFTR  or another email. Is this 
what you where asking?

In 1968 it took the computing-Power of 2 C-64 to fly a rocket to the moon.
Now, 1997 it takes the Power of a Pentium 133 to run Microsoft Windows 95.
                    Something must have gone wrong.
