Linux users encounter a typical error message of 'argument list too long'when they try to delete a file. This issue arises due to the problem in command rm which is one of the most commonly used shell commands in Linux. This error occurs due to the reason that the system commands show limitations when a large number of arguments are fed into a single command. There are four solutions that can effectively deal with the operating system's problem. Through Xargs, Command Find, Perl Program and running loop in shell script, the error 'Argument list too long' is solved.
