SSH Commands - Deleting files and escaping characters
I have two quick questions.
I had a script create a backup of every file on my site using the following format "filename.php.bac". I want to delete these files now and I tired to use "rm *.bac" but that only deleted the files in the current directory. How can I delete ALL those files in EVERY directory and sub-directory starting at the public_html directory?
How can I escape semi-colon's (;) in a perl script? I'm trying to run a search+replace script to update some Analytics code and I have a ton of files to update but for some reason if there is a semi-colon in the find varable, it assumes that it has reached the end of the contents in that variable.
Here is the code. Take a look at the $find variable and you will see extra semi-colon's. How do I tell the script to not treat those semi-colons as the end of the variable?
