argument list to long for linux commands
i have the following problem:
i got a directory containing many thousand files, some of them ending with *.dssp, some others ending with *.ent.
what i want to do now is to delete all files ending with *.dssp but if i execute the command:
>> rm -f *.dssp
i get the error message
>> argument list too long
what can i do to solve this? do i have to set some internal variable to a higher value?
thx in advance.........
