How to delete a file with garbage in its name

   Does anyone know an easy way to delete a file that has garbage in its name?
   I used <Complete> on a name change, and now the file is inaccessible
   to the normal deletion methods.

Use Dired.  Or give Delete File a starname that uniquely matches part
of the name of the file (no good if the entire file name consists of
the #\Complete character).
