guys, (of either gender)
here's one that is a bit difficult to figure out how to ask, but
here's my first shot:
i'm looking for a file what contains string "S". the filename
in this case has a zillion letters, but that beside the point.
i can use grep to find "S" and grep gives me the file[s] that
have the string. now, is there any easy way of reading that
file, or deleting or otherwise munging that file?
nutshell is that every time i reboot (into kde), kde wastes
time/cpu spawning unwanted whatever: versions of konqueror, kttsd,
ksayit, &c. [[i found these files in
~/.kde/share/config/session, about 20, dated may, 09 to oct 08.
rm'ing the bunch would get rid of the instantiate problem, but
having a script to diddle with a found string "S" would be
useful esp'ly if the filename of pathname were long.
i'll mouse swipe the string and fname to prove my point.
thanks for any help.
ps: if scripting this is too grizzly i'll do it in C and do an
inline post of src and example use.
