First off, Merry Christmas, everyone. Safe holiday travels, if you
intend to do so.
2nd, I'm a Ham Radio operator. I've recently gotten active in APRS
(Automatic Position Reporting System) via ham radio.
Xastir (as far as I can tell) is the only Native Linux APRS
client/tracking software package available.
I found a whole BUNCH of maps, but after lots of research and
conversation with other hams, I'm finding that there are -many- files
that are simply redundant and more than that, they're not necessary.
The directory structure of the maps is broken down by states, and
counties for each state.
all directories contain .shp files (shape).
linux:/usr/share/xastir/maps/TIGER2008/48_TEXAS # ls *.shp
tl_2008_48_countyec.shp tl_2008_48_place00.shp tl_2008_48_sldu.shp
All I need are
The question is:
How do I go to the root of the maps dir, and tell it
rm -r *.shp except pointlm, tabblock00, vid00
is it that easy? rm --help wasn't that helpful.
Man rm didn't answer my questions, either.
This message has been scanned for viruses and
dangerous content by MailScanner, and is
