comment Why do I have to cd out of a deleted directory?
@MarkusJohansson Instead of removing and tarring code, I would highly recommend to use any version control tool available. Far more easy to share update (just push or pull) and less options to accidentally delete the wrong files. And you keep older version by default.

comment Delete *.txt files by date between MMDDYYYY and MMDDYYYYY
Hint for future reader: use -ls instead of -exec rm -f {} + initially to check whether you have the correct filelist, in order to prevent emotional damage in case of a mistake with the dates.

echo -e "Foo\b\b\bBar" > test.log works for me to have only Bar in test.log. Can you elaborate why this does not work for you?
