Your script looks good.

You need to close the `cat ... statement with another ` .
Also, depending on your Flavor of UNIX, you probably don't need the brackets and semicolons.

In your cat statement you can put the full path of the file that contains the columnar list of the files to be deleted. I would hope that this list shows the full path of each file to be deleted as well.

You can also use the "-i" option if you want to double check the deletion of the file, but it looks like you already want to get rid of all of these files.

Here is my variation of your script. Yours was good, but I like to see a logfile output with errors as well.

The 2> delete.error.log will record any exceptions to your script. That you can look at later. This is good especially for more complicated scripts.

for A in `cat filename`
echo $A "is being deleted now" >> delete.log
find . -name $A -exec rm {} \;
echo $A "has been deleted" >> delete.log 2> delete.error.log
