comment How do I delete a file in a read-only directory?

I'm not sure I understand this sentence: "When you need to move files...deal with that later". Also, cp then rm is too slow for my needs.

That's not quite what I want. I want it to work whether "ignore me" is before or after "needle".

revised How to utilize XDG directories and paths in Bash?
bash does not replace the tilde in those lines so you have to use $HOME instead
