Using the more command to discard lines at the beginning of a file

If you wish to ignore lines at the start of output or in the beginning of a file, you can use the more command to do so. E.g., suppose I have a text file named fruit.txt that contains the following lines:

apple
banana
clementine
date
eggplant
fig
grape

On a Linux, Unix, or OS X/macOS system, if I want to see all lines of the file but the first one, I can use the +n, where n is a number, argument to the more command. In this case, I can use more +2 fruit.txt to start the output at the second line in the file.

$ more +2 fruit.txt
banana
clementine
date
eggplant
fig
grape
$

If I wanted to ignore the first four lines and start output at the fifth line, I could use more +5.

$ more +5 fruit.txt
eggplant
fig
grape
$
