No, it's not clear. I'm having a hard time in understanding you, but I try to answer the question in three manners.

First variant: You want to have a file that contains the commands "rm -rf *blabla.bin* listed in it", you can do that using code snippet part 1.

Second variant: Like variant #1, but the output is printed to the console instead of into a file.

Third variant: You want to execute rm -rf *blabla.bin* immediately, but with all the files matching your search query all over the filesystem.


# variant #1
for file in $(locate blabla.bin); do echo "rm -rf $file"; done
 
# variant #2
for file in $(locate blabla.bin); do echo "rm -rf $file" >>/path/to/output-file.txt; done
 
# variant #3
# !!!!! very dangerous if the you make a typo in the keyword to use !!!!!
# !!!!! could delete all the data on your disk without further interaction !!!!!
locate blabla.bin | xargs rm -rf

OK, but _PLEASE_ be careful using this command. If you mistype the search string for the locate command you can easily erase data on your hard disk.
