Due to a typing error (slip of the finger) I have ended up creating a
directory called -k (doh!!)
# rmdir "-k"
rmdir: illegal option -- k
usage: rmdir [-p] directory ...
I cannot delete it because get error -k is not an option
cannot mv "-k" delete-me
# mv "-k" delete-me-now
mv: illegal option -- k
usage: mv [-fi] source target
mv [-fi] source ... directory
As far as i can tell this file will not go away unless I newfs the file
system and restore the files without the "-k" directory from a system
dump which is what i'm proceeding to do.
Is this the only way?
