romanhr,

Try this...

Code:
#!/usr/bin/perl -w
while (<*.txt>) {                                 #for each .txt file
   open (FH, "<$_") or die "Can't open file $_";  #  open file handle
   while (<FH>) {                                 #  while not end of file
      if ($. > 4) {                               #    if line number > 4 
         print $_;                                #       print full line incl. end of line char
