dsDelete: What is it?I began working for a new employer, which in most ways was really great. One drawback: we work on Macs. Apart from the other adjustments for me this entailed, I found that when transferring my files to a PC, I was constantly encountering ".DS_Store" files left here and there. These files are a tedious artifact of Apple's file manager. Some java tools I had written which worked with files and directories would actually choke on these, because they get left in unexpected places sometimes. Deleting them by hand is... well... tedious. Enter a custom tool for the job.
What does it do?The program operates recursively on a provided target directory. It traverses through all subdirectories, deleting .DS_Store files whenever encountered.
