Sometimes I want to __VIEW__ a huge file and I get

File ZZZ is large (1645MB), really open? (y or n)  n
abort-if-file-too-large: Aborted

What I want is another option, in addition to y/n:
open a part of the file.
E.g., the first+the last N lines or M characters, whichever comes first.
(something like head+tail).

Is this already available or do I need to put something up myself?
