If there aren't too many other files in your directory, you can use rm -i * and and type "n" for each file you don't want to delete and,... yes you've guessed it,.. "y" for the dodgy file! The "--" is the better option IMHO, but just wanted to add something else.... this is handy when you have blank file names (as mentioned in an earlier post)
