I was tasked to get first 100 lines of records from a database dump. While searching big brother G, I found the solution here:- how to extract a range of lines from a file provided by zazzybob.
Here’s the solutions:-
You could also pipe though sed to extract the range – e.g.
blah | sed -n ‘1,1000p’ | blah
to extract the first 1000 lines of the file
How I uses it:-
cat file.unl | sed -n ‘1,100p’ > out100.unl
