If you had bothered to read the manpage for rm(1) you would already know that since the following paragraph appears there: The rm command uses getopt(3) to parse its arguments, which allows it to accept the --' option which will cause it to stop processing flag options at that point. This will allow the removal of file names that begin with a dash (-'). For example: rm -- -filename The same behavior can be obtained by using an absolute or relative path reference. For example: rm /home/user/-filename rm ./-filename -- <Insert your favourite quote here.> Erik Trulsson [EMAIL PROTECTED] _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
