st: Skipping Lines When Reading Raw Data
I am reading in a large number of raw data files that contain header
information as well as non-data information at the end of the file.
The first seven lines always contain header info and I can skip over
this using the following code: "infix 8 firstlineoffile".
When the data end, there are sixteen lines with non-data information.
If there are 92 observations the sixteen lines begin on the 100th line
(7+92=99=header+data). If there are 126 observations (7+126=133) the
sixteen lines begin on line 134.
Any ideas about how to either read these data w/o the last sixteen
line or how to drop the observations after reading in all the data? I
do not know the number of observations beforehand.
