linux question

I need to write a shell script that will search through all folders for files with extensions of .tex and then delete the coresponding .aux, .dvi and .log files by asking the user whether or not to delete the files. I need to use the find command.

I am totally stuck.

Hi, welcome to LQ!

The two needs are of some concern ... they make the request look like homework.
Is it?

What have you done so far, what did you get stuck on?
