    Hi,

    I am trying to delete all files that end in .csv within a directory.

    I'm not sure how to go about this,

    I am using bash and the command I used was;

    rm '/home/eeng/ME_project/Big_Users/*.csv'
    New to this scripting so not too sure where i'm going wrong.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks.

    I think this command should work.
    rm ~/ME_project/Big_Users/*.csv
