Remove folder and file


hi

under linux (c programming)

i have this file

/opt/good/Ext5_Linux_RTU2/led/A/L1/text.txt
/opt/good/Ext5_Linux_RTU2/led/A/L2/text.txt
/opt/good/Ext5_Linux_RTU2/led/b/L1/text.txt
/opt/good/Ext5_Linux_RTU2/led/b/L2/text.txt

i would like to remove:

/A/L1/text.txt
/A/L2/text.txt
/B/L1/text.txt
/B/L2/text.txt
....
other folder can exist...

all folder and file after /led need to be erased

are there a way to remove all folder after led?

I would do :
Code:
find /opt/good/Ext5_Linux_RTU2/led -mindepth 2 -exec rm -rf {} \;
[edit]
I did not read carefully " other folder can exist..."
This command would remove all contents of
/opt/good/Ext5_Linux_RTU2/led subdirectories

Could you ellaborate with " other folder can exist..."
