    It's a lot like DOS (if you are familiar those commands).

    rm alert_stsiog.04*.log

    will remove all of your April files.

    Make a bunch of files (or just copy the ones you have now if they're not too big) into a "playground" directory and experiment with the wild cards you can use. That's the best way to learn.

    Thanks to both Stecal and Jeff.
    Note to Jeff:
    Could please elaborate a little on the combination of the wildcard command?. Will it remove 30 days worth of log?
