Unix ---> Removing files

The rm (remove) command deletes files that you no longer want. Just type rm filename to remove the file filename. If more than one filename is on the command line, i.e.

rm archaeologists date anything
then the files archaeologists, date, and anything are removed.

At times you may have stange filenames that elude the standard removal techniques described here. For these cases you may wish to refer to Strange Names for your salvation.
