http://www.unix.com – Hey guys, I want to do something quite simple but I just can't no matter what I try. I have a large file and i usually just: Code: gzcat test.gz | nohup /test/this-script-does-things-to-the-records.pl -> /testdir/tmp_test.txt But now I need to do it only for the first 100k records. I sure hope you can be not to hard on a newbie like me :) Moderator's Comments: Please view this code tag video for how to use code tags when posting code and data. (HowTos)
