My laptop has a tendency to reboot on it's own, randomly. While this is annoying I haven't had the time to diagnose what's going on. However, the annoying part about this is that if I have vim open it will orphan any swap files I have for open files. To get around finding and deleting each one manually I decided to leverage the find command like this
find . -name '*.sw*'
That will show you any swap files that are out there.
Now that I knew which files were present I was then thinking of piping this to rm so I didn't have to copy and paste each file. However, I learned that find has an option to delete the files it has.
-delete. This means I can simply do
find . -name '*.sw*' -delete
With that the file are gone.Back
