Unix – How to get the last lines of a file except the first 20

shelltailunixunix-head

Say I have a file with any number of lines, say, 125. I want to get all the lines except the first n, say, 20. So, I want lines 21–125.

Is there a way to do this with with tail/head, or some other tool?

Try

tail -n +21 myfile.txt
