Well, that was fun! I was wondering just how many different ways people
could come up with deleting the file, but this one has to be crowned the
winner of the all important "Most Obscure Solution" :-) To delete something based upon the inode - fantastic!

Most handy for filenames loaded with unprintable characters which "ls" just shows as "?" and which you have no clue how to type or wildcard, but not required for simple - prefixed files, as has been demonstrated :-)
