Unzipping only Part of file.

Dec 5, 2011 at 6:45 PM

Does anyone have any idea of how to extract only a small section of a file (Ex. first few kb) contained in a zipped folder?

 

I'm trying to mine information out of a massive number of compressed text files. The text files can be in the order 15MB uncompressed each, but I only need data from the first and maybe last 2kb of data.

At the moment I have roughly 350GB (Compressed), I'd like to mine.
