Oracle Tips by Burleson 

Cleanup old holding files

This section of the script removes all of the UNIX files from the last execution of the script. Note that it is a good idea in UNIX to use the /tmp directory. This is because the UNIX systems administrator will periodically remove all files in this directory and you do not have to worry about leaving “junk” files in UNIX directories.

# Remove the prior files from /tmp . . .
rm -f /tmp/alert_log_dir_${ORACLE_SID}.ora
rm -f /tmp/log_archive_start_${ORACLE_SID}.ora
rm -f /tmp/log_archive_dest_${ORACLE_SID}.ora
rm -f /tmp/dump*${ORACLE_SID}.ora
rm -f /tmp/ora600_${ORACLE_SID}.ora
rm -f /tmp/arch_${ORACLE_SID}.ora

The above is an excerpt from the "Oracle9i UNIX Administration Handbook" by Oracle press, authored by Donald K. Burleson.
