 Thanks so much to you all for your fast replays. I believe that it is
better not to think of such thing I mean trying to recover a file in a
Unix system which is deleted using "rm' command ....
here is a summary of the answers I got ...

1) recover the file from a backup
2) If you deleted the file using the filemanager tool you can check in
the .wastebasket folder. If you used the rm command you are out of luck.


4) There is unrm package for sol 2.6 and hp 10.20, for more info please

Many Thanks to
