RE: Delete files older than a specific date in bash/linux

in #linux4 years ago

Why did no one mention the -delete option for find, all that extra pipe and exec stuff is silly. Not to mention problems with spaces and special characters in names.

Sort:  

frankly I even doesn't knew the -delete option. all top geeks* on the web always do the job by piping to exec or xargs... :-)
*even the grandmaster nixCraft :)
