In article <slrneik88c.2fqr.philip+ XXXX@XXXXX.COM >,
Well, let's face it, the man page for find is not that easy a read for a
relative newcomer. It took me quite some time to learn how to use some of
find's more powerful features, a lot of which I picked up through reading
the followups to questions about find in the newsgroups. :-)
To answer the OP's question in brief:
find some-path(s)-to-search optional-matching-criteria -delete
More elaborate arrangements are possible, of course, but this is the
barebones crux of the matter.
As Philip mentioned, read the man page for more info. *Lots* more info.
