rm -rf will recursively remove folders and their contents
The OWNER of a file does not need rw permissions in order to rm it.
The rm command accepts the &qt;–&qt;&qt; option which will cause it to stop processing flag options from that point forward. This allows the removal of file names that begin with a dash (&qt;-&qt;&qt;).
rm — -filename
Alternatively use an absolute or relative path reference.
To delete a file with non-printable characters in the name: &qt;bad file name&qt;&qt; Use the shell wildcard "?" for each character
