|if you have an old edlin.com or edlin.exe, you can pipe|
the following into it (from batchfile tail.bat which is its
own pipe, it goto's past the pipe data)
edlin %1 < tail.bat
(the "#" tells it goto the last line, then it "backs up"
11 lines, (the next blank line is important, be sure
to put it there)
then it deletes from 1 to "." which ref's the
line it's sitting on, then "e" saves the file.)
if you wanted to make the number of lines as a
variable quantity, you could use eko.com to put
the variable line-count data into a pipe file.
also, if using large files, you will have to buffer through
the file, which i will explain if any interest is expressed
in this post, otherwise i'll wait to see if any cares.
