Removing a directory named after a file

view full story

http://askubuntu.com – I've been looking for a code snippet to place in a .sh that removes a directory named after a file. What I mean by this is I would like to move to specify a directory and then search it for a list of files of type ".XXX" and then remove any subdirectories (with contents) with the same name. Pseudo code of what i want to do: find names all files of type .XXX within a directory find and remove all subdirectories with names that equal the file names found How would one best go about this? I have been looking at the find function, which I will be using before this function to unrar archives: (HowTos)
