I want to delete some remote files with a wildcard, running 'rm' over ssh.
The obvious syntax doesn't work at all - it doesn't even make an ssh connection - I think it is interpreting the wildcard locally: # ssh [EMAIL PROTECTED] rm -rf /some/testdir/* ssh: No match. Then, these combinations of single and double quotes: ssh [EMAIL PROTECTED] 'rm -rf /some/testdir/*' ssh [EMAIL PROTECTED] rm -rf '/some/testdir/*' ssh [EMAIL PROTECTED] 'rm -rf "/some/testdir/*"' All connect over ssh, and produce no errors, but the remote files are still there - nothing was deleted. So what is the _right_ way to do this ? Thanks. _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
