So I want to remove all the *.jpgs from one dir on my Mac on down, including any folders lower in the hierarchy as well. In Windows, I'd use...

del *.jpg /s

Easy. If I forget, and I do, I type a simple help del and I remember.

How do you do it on *NIX?

The discussion of "experts" looking for the solution looks like this. That's not intuitive, folk. If usenet users, already a pretty seriously savvy subset of the PC using community, have that much trouble, something's screwy.

Here's the easiest to remember solution for me from that thread:

rm `find . -name '*.abc'`

If I forget, and I do, all I have to do is type man rm and I'm right back to Google, looking for something like this again.
