Range of lines from a fileBelow is the command to extract certain lines in Perl based on line numbers.
for eg: If I need to extract lines 5 -10 then i need to do:
perl -lne 'print if($.>=5&&$.<=10) your_file
Also this can done in awk in a much simpler way:
awk 'NR>=5&&NR<=10 your_file
Classic way of doing this is :
head -10 your_file | tail -6
