I'm trying to use the command line to remove all m3u files from my MP3 folders using find or locate. The idea was to use rm > find *.m3u but god (google) seems to make me believe that find has no recursive option. Do I need a script to do this seemingly simple task? Do I need to use locate instead? And if so... How do I configure locate to index my other mounted media (2 NTFS drives, 1 ReiserFS drive)
I'm using Ubuntu Edgy AMD64.
I think I'm going to go look at some porn now to get the frustration out...
when i use find from my home directory (find . *VTC*)
it doesn't find a file that is contained in a dir called "A+" that is located in my home dir. It spits out a bunch of output that show paths that are contained in my home dir, and i've even seen the file I was looking for in that output, but no results are found?
Well, The -print0 switch doesn't help the command in the form that I was curios about getting working. I guess xargs is the only way to go. I still am curious though on how to have updatedb also index my other HD's. I greatly appreciate the help guys. may much pleasant debauchery find you all.
