| Currently I am stuck with a mailbox of 950M. I need to yank
| lines from the line number 16186834 to 16204487. [ ... ]
| Can I use a command that will "cut" lines from 16186834 to
| 16204487 and redirect the output to another file?
sed -n -e 16186834,16204487p
should do it; and to be a shade faster
(esp. if the last line, 16204487, is not
"close" to the end)
sed -n -e 16186834,16204487p -e 16204487q
