Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

yeah its part of my class at school to write scripts, I thought this would be a rather easy one but info like that Demonbane such as where cyg mounts the C drive is new to me. Plus I,m a complete Newb just started learning linux
Make sure you create a /cygdrive directory, its isnt created by default for some reason, though the mount points are.
and its not suppose to give any output unless you add a "-v" switch.
If you want to use a for loop you need a wildcard
for files in /cygdrive/c/Documents\ and\ Settings/zechs/Local\ Settings/Temporary\ Internet\ Files/*; do rm $file; done
Nevermind, disregard that owner comment, what do you mean windows box, windows is just a bunch of damn boxes, where can I find my name, such as you described.
I truly appreciate the patientence and help.
OK I see what that did duh, it then prompts me to delete the file and there is a ton!!!
Is there a way I can make it auto delete all of these, and yes it was Owner (hits himself cause its 5 in the morning)
would this script work
echo "would you like to delelte your temp internet files"
if [ $1 = yes ]
cd /cygdrive/c/Documents\ and\ Settings/Owner/Local\ Settings/Temporary\ Internet\ Files/
rm -rvi *
echo "fine let them sit thier"
Insted of prompting me how can i just make it delete all the files automatically?
