log rm commands

function rm { workingdir=$( pwdx $$ | awk '{print $2}' ) /usr/bin/rm $* echo "rm $* issued at $(date) by the user $(who am i| awk '{print $1} ') in the directory ${workingdir}" >> /tmp/rm.out }
Sometimes, it is annoying to find your files or directories missing. If you want to log all the rm commands you can put this in /etc/profile.

You could also send it to the syslog: rm() {workingdir=$( pwdx $$ | awk '{print $2}' ); /bin/rm $*; /usr/bin/logger -p info "rm $* in ${workingdir}" }

Oh, thanks for helping me in this command because I have trying to trace the bugs in my command. You need to explore information about your dissertation before writing it. Sometimes it is really hard for the programmer to trace minor bugs in their commands but I really like this that you help us in this way.
