I found a stupid problem in "rm" that i think that already must be knowed, but i'm reporting. :)
I tryed:
netfinity:/w/bkporacle>rm -rf *
bash: /bin/rm: Argument list too long
I understood that it have much arguments... i have 17740 files in directory. I know that i can remove it using find with -exec option but why it happens with rm ??
A problem with numer of arguments suported by va_list in rm ??
Or a limit in the bash ??
Why not fix this problem ??
Thkz a lot.
Best Regards.
