Question cat and wc options

Hi there

Can anyone tell me how to concatenate everything except the first line from one file to another.

right now I'm just doing
cat file1 >> file2, but I don't want the first line copied.

Also, does anyone know how to get a word count on every file with no file extension and execute permissions for others.
I've done this for all c files by the command
find . -name "*.c" -print | wc -l

but when I ealier found the files with no file extension and execute permission for others I used:

find "$argv[1] " -name "*" " grep -v "\."
foreach file (file2)
if (! -d $file && -x $file) then

and I don't know how to incorporate this definition into a word count.

Thank for any help

try this ...

tail -n +2 file1 >> file2


ls | tr '.' '+' | grep -v "+" > output

for x in `cut -f1 -d" " output`
wc -l $x
