Skipping the header in a for loop (implied with a statement modifier) is quite flexible as you can skip one, two or many lines with equal facility. It also has the advantage that the scalar receiving the readline only exists within the loop.
I hope this is of interest.
Update: Fixed typo.
Update 2: ikegami has pointed out that this code is invalid and explained why so don't do this.
