Hey all you guys could be mistaken. It looks like the OP is trying to
implement some sort of ghetto database. And he may NOT necessarily
want the FIRST five lines of the file. He said (and i quote) "the
values /between/ # and #". Where # and # are starting and ending of a
range -- not necessarily the starting of the input file! However we
really need the OP to clear up these questions!
