How do I remove/unlink wildcarded files

Hi Everyone,

I have a function I'm writing to delete wildcarded files in a directory.
I tried this:

def unlinkFiles():
    os.remove("/home/anthony/backup/unix*")

This doesn't seem to work because it's a wildcard filename. What is the
proper way to delete files using wildcards?

Thanks,
Anthony
