    Hi I tried the below shell code. But it removed only first line. Thanks
    #!/bin/sh sed -e '1d;$d' /home/file_20140407.txt >>file_20140407_n.txt
      Works for me ...
      $ sed -e '1d;$d' jaxws/src/share/jaxws_classes/com/sun/xml/internal/me +ssaging/saaj/soap/SOAPDocumentFragment.java > t $ diff jaxws/src/share/jaxws_classes/com/sun/xml/internal/messaging/sa +aj/soap/SOAPDocumentFragment.java t 1d0 < /* 45d43 < }
      Does your file have a newline as the last character ? You'll experience problems if not.

        I am not seeing any characters at the end of the line when I open in edit plus
