    Normally you use tail to show the last n lines of a file (e.g.

    tail -n 100 file.txt
    to show the last 100 lines of file.txt.)
    But what I need is a way to show all lines of a file starting from, let's say, line 10. Is it possible?

    You can do that by adding a + sign next to the number:

    tail +10 file
