Quite useful trick, when you want to get rid of the first certain lines of the output/file.

$tail -n +2

tail prints out the result starts from the 2nd line.

When you use the “find” command to generate a file list under certain folder, this is quite easy to eliminate the folder path at the beginning of the output.

Learned this from SO How can I remove the first line of a text file using bash/sed script?
