open source scripting on the list is a good way to learn.
I tend to stay away from combo commands that are destructive for obvious
reasons and yes, though the 'exec' command would work, and I started
down the path, I know that I would prefer just to have a file list to
examine first and then just cat the list to the rm command as a measure
What I have also found that learning to live with grep and sed is making
my life much easier rather than complicating it.
