I will start receiving many large CSV files, of which only the first few lines are of interest to me. I was hoping to open them by piping only the first few lines to Calc, but this doesn't work:
$ libreoffice4.1 --calc <(head large_file.csv)
Upon trying this, I get a popup:
/dev/fd/63 does not exist.
Is there any easy way to open only the first few lines without creating a new (temporary) file? This is on Kubuntu Linux 12.10 with LibreOffice 4.1.
