Subject: which is the best way to find some files

Hi,

I have some files like

a_1.txt a_2.txt
a_1.doc a_2.doc
a_1.xxx a_2.xxx

I only want to keep a_*.xxx

but delete all other a_*.doc or .txt and more

rm a_*.[^{xxx}] not work,

Thanks for suggestions,

Best regards,


maybe try

rm !(*.xxx)
Cool. work on my laptop,

but not on cluster:
$ ls !(*.gro)
-bash: !: event not found

Thanks,
./tony
