comment Prevent user typing accidental space between rm and wildcard
Your "remove" alias will never remove more than one file at a time. You cannot use a wildcard, because the shell expands it before the command sees it.

Thanks for the tip. That makes a lot more sense for several reasons. I'm trying that out now.

comment ls syntax to show filename and directory
My apologies to you. Three different machines responded to the command in three different ways. I now realize that the first machine worked "correctly" because one of the file names was so long, it forced a single column. I have updated my answer to use the -1 (one) flag which should force one-file-per-line.

comment df -l is showing 100% full but the file was removed
"Removing a file" only takes away the link to access that file in the future. As long as the file is "in use" by one or more active running programs, then the underlying file system will continue to mark the space as "used". You can't get to it with a new process, because the space has no accessible link in the file system. But the program that is already using that file space still has it, and it's still active, and it's still in use.
