Re: [K12OSN] Script to flush down the drain files from every user home...



The succinct way would be
 cd /home/${x}/.Trash && rm -rf *
(&& means continue if the previous command succeeded)
or just
rm -rf /home/${x}/.Trash/*
as long as the expansion fits in the command line size limit.


that's a quote from Les(from a different scripting question)... you are correct Robert!

 that was one from a while back...

 change the path in the 'cd' line from
.mozilla/firefox/*.default/Cache to whatever you want..

If the cd fails you might rm -Rf something you don't want to. Better
to rm the full path instead of cd to it. I thinkthis  issue  came
before too. Maybe it was Les who warned about it.
