Follow-up Comment #6, bug #55281 (project octave):

The attached patch should run on any POSIX-compatible system. Thanks for the
hint to head [1] and cut [2].

If I understand correctly, using "head" to read the first line of a binary
file could potentially be quite slow (if the first LF character happens to
occur very late in a very large file). But I don't know of any
POSIX-compatible syntax to read only a certain number of bytes from a file.
FWIW, I didn't notice any slowdown on my system.
