bash how to remove all files with multiple extensions except one directory
I have this snippet
Find .\( -iname\*.ini -o –
iname\*.properties -o -iname\*.xml\) -type f -delete
This deletes everything in all subfolders that contain these extensions, which is exactly what I want.
The only change I want to make is now I want it to exclude a directory named “Resources/”. I want it to remove all noticed expansion files in all subfolders except the Resources directory.
But I’m not sure how to do it.
Thanks for any help
The following command should exclude the resource directory
find . \( -iname \*.ini -o -iname \*.properties -o -iname \*.xml \) -type f -not -path "./resources/*" -delete
