Great! This way I get all regular files removed and keep the directory
BTW: I did a check - take a look at "/usr/local/bin/". There I found two perl
programs not mentioned in the LFS book "Short Descriptions".
The two programs are "cpan" and "prove". Maybe one could mention them in the
LFS book "Short Descriptions" - nevertheless there might be no real need.
