Get rid of first & last lines from STD_OUT

I have an application that executes, printing a bunch of text to the screen... only problem is that I don't want to see the first line (the internal command being run) or the last line (it says "done")

is there something to chop off the first and last line simply through use of piping the command to something?


# ./myApp | chopLines
