I know the FAQ explains how to delete files beginning with "-" (this is the
most common deletion question, and probably one of the top 3 questions
asked in general about Unix -- I think it's also the one that receives the
most *wrong* answers). But the answers in that question don't apply to the
OP's question. Do you disagree?
