i have managed to insert a bullet in my poda courtesy of tar and my
ineptness! that is, i did:
tar -cvIf --remove-files /tmp/foo.tz /opt/tmp
silly me filled up my current directory with a file called "--remove-files".
my question is: how the heck to i get rid of this beast????
rm -f "--remove-files"
rm -f '--remove-files'
rm -f "\\-\\-remove\\-files"
rm -f "\-\-remove\-files"
rm -f '\\-\\-remove\\-files'
rm -f '\-\-remove\-files'
all with the same lack of success!
any assist in this would be most appreciated.
rm -i *files
