Assuming it is the only file with the terminating character of 'al' you can
do an 'rm ?al'

How can you delete a file that is named -al? Being stupid, I forgot what I
was doing and typed 'touch ls -al'. Now, rm and mv both refuse to touch the
file, whether I quote it, double-quote it, backslash escape it, or stand on
my head, claiming that -al are illegal arguments. Help!
