If I use FIND (WinXP) like this:

FIND /I "blahblah" test.txt > test2.txt

The first two lines are header information:

CRLF
---------- TEST.TXTCRLF

(The CRLF aren't visible of course).

Is there an easy/clever way to strip out those first two lines?

I'd prefer to do it natively without additional software, but could use a utility in a pinch.

Couldn't you at least have pretended it was hard? ;) Thanks! –  Craig H Mar 16 '11 at 19:18
