I have a directory ../classes under which i have a lot of subdirectories ../classes/com/financial/argon ../classes/com/financial/argon/util ../classes/com/orion/util ............... ............ All these directories contains java & class files now i want to remove all the java files which is any where in this directory structure by giving a command from ../classes I tried as follows rm -Rf *.java & rm -rf *.java but it doesn't work
I just want to know is there any body call my bean's Getter and Setter methods with "Please" in front - My favorite quip from Bugzilla
If you would like to delete a directory and all of it's subdirectories, type rm -rf <directory> so if i wanted to delete my entire usr directory, I would type rm -rf /usr be careful, this isn't windows, if you type rm -rf /, it will delete everything without warning because -f means force (no matter what) post another message if that doesn't do the trick
Anoop, I dont know whether it can be done by a single unix command. But the alternative is to write a simple shell/PERL script which takes the directory name, goes through all the files/directories which lie below it, and delete those having extention '.java' Amol
find . -name "*.java" -print0 | xargs -0r rm -f The "find" command is a treasure too little known. I got the above text by doing "info find", selecting "common tasks" then "cleaning up". Actually, I think I have been getting away with a shorter version: find . -name "*.java" | xargs rm -f But I'd test that someplace harmless, first.
"privilege" comes from the Latin words for "private" and "law" (legal) and dates to feudal times. To "claim privilege" meant that you were above the laws that applied to the common people.
I use ant build in task "Delete" to do the same, and it is platform independent.

I wrote a java program that recursively goes through sub-directories deleting files of a user-defined suffix. I use it to clear out old .class files. I can send it to you if you post your e-mail address. Eric.
Why is the word "abbreviation" so long? And this ad is so short?
