    Removing the oldest file in all directories


    How can I write a simple bash script that will remove the oldest file in all directories, but it should display these files including their dates and ask me if i want to delete them first, before these files get deleted.



    Thanks,

    steps:
    1. go over the directories one by one.
    2. in every directory, say ls -lrt, and take the last entries and remove it off ??

    Have you got it ??

    Or you want some thing else ??
