Unix Tip #4476- June 13, 2014

REMOVING CORES CONDITIONALLY


To find and remove core files
conditionally:

PROMPT> find ~ -name core -exec file {} \; -exec rm -i {} \;

The File will show which
executable the core file is
for and the -i option to rm
will allow you to choose
weather to delete it or not.

################# EXAMPLE ###############################
PROMPT> find ~ -name core -exec file {} \; -exec rm -i {} \;
/my/home/core: ELF 32-bit LSB core file of 'netscape-commun'
(signal 3), Intel 8
rm: remove `/my/home/core'? y
