This is a classic example of the (:tail .:) markup I mentioned in the
quickly-becoming-reality-due-to-Hans's-vigilance "shelltools" cookbook.


In actual shell script it would be "tail -n 5 filename" to get the last 5
lines of the filename.  Presumably in pmwiki-ese it would be something like
(:tail n=5 filename/pattern .:)
