"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years.

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

If you want the first line as nr one and then count 10 steps ahead and print every 10:th line.

$> sed -n '1,${p;n;n;n;n;n;n;n;n;n;}' file

If you want to start at line 10.

$> sed -n '10,${p;n;n;n;n;n;n;n;n;n;}' file
