}Anyone know the easiest way remove the 1st line in a
}text file. I was thinking it should be something
I personally would use:
# perl -ni.bak -e'print if ++$a > 1;' filename.txt
which will create a filename.bak with the original file, and a
filename.txt with the first line missing. (You can shorten to
"-ni -e" if you don't need a backup.)
