Subject [jira] [Created] (DRILL-4878) Skip n lines

Charles Givre created DRILL-4878:

             Summary: Skip n lines
                 Key: DRILL-4878
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DRILL-4878
             Project: Apache Drill
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Storage - Text & CSV
            Reporter: Charles Givre
            Priority: Minor

I've been working on some data with Drill and the problem I've been running into is that the
data is generated by a system which prepends several lines of rubbish before the delimited
data actually starts.   

This doesn't seem like it would be that difficult, but it would be extremely useful if there
was a configuration option to tell Drill to skip the first N lines of a file.  I saw that
there are already the 'skipFirstLine' as well as the comment character, but neither of these
options will work for me in this case.
