Yeah, its nice in a script and a sure-fire fix, but its a cut'n'paste...

We'd have to come up with an easily explainable sure-fire method which is
more in keeping with the spirit of the book (user interaction)...
Unless of course you guys like the previous fix ;-)

There's probably a better way of accomplishing the same thing

cd whatever_the_fixed_include_dir_is
rm -f `grep -l "DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE" *`

would be better interactively, followed by some text saying

"delete all the directories" or something to that effect

Accomplishes the same thing without being a c'n'p fest :-)

What do you guys think?
