Huu ? You mean it's worth to add such codes in the program
just because you can't ignore x lines and then print y ones in
the front-end ?

I don't see what's hard....

for ($j=0; $j <= $x; $j++) { 
  <INP>;
}
for (; $j <= $x + $y; $j++) { 
  &print_nicely(<INP>);
}

That's why I don't think it's worth to put it in the code...
it's a task typical and trivial for the front end...

That's exactly what you are getting : more command lines option,
more lines codes in the core program for something not realy related
and that is much simpler in the front-end...

I guess that I will have to post a front-end somewhere... just
give me a little time to write the doc...
