rm * Argument list too long
To delete all files in the current directory, you run the extremely dangerous
**rm * **
**rm -rf ***
to recursively remove all files and directories.
However, the command has a 128K buffer limitation in the Linux Kernel. As a workaround you can pipe each file to rm like so:
**find . -name '*' | xargs rm**
