I had a directory named
myname which was archived in
myname.tar. Now I want to take
myname.tar, unarchive it, and delete all the files in the
myname directory (after unarchiving).
Here are my commands for the above task:
find -name deleteme.tar tar -xvf deleteme.tar rm -r delete/*
These individual commands are working fine, but I need a one-line command, so I tried this:
find -name deleteme.tar | tar -xvf deleteme.at | rm -r delete/*
I got this error:
"rm -r deleteme/* rm: cannot remove `deleteme/*': No such file or directory "
What am I doing wrong?
