Have a look at sed. Sorry can't help with syntax and I'm sure one can also do 
the same with perl or awk or whatever. But for the first, man (1) sed will 
help with 'cat yourfile | sed -youroptions' e.g.

You can also use vi (if it's a regular textfile with less than hundreds of 
megs), find your endpoint with e.g "/YourEndKeyWord" and do in instruction 
mode a "dG", after that save.
