Development Tools Introduction to Git Managing Committed Files Removing Files

What's the command to use if I have to remove multiple files?

I'm thinking I can't use "git rm ." as with git add, because I'd remove all the files in the directory.

You can simply use

git rm file1 file2 file3 file4

Alternatively if they are all a specific type of file, or named in a similar way you can use wildcards, for example the following line will remove all pdf files:

git rm *.pdf
