How to delete a lot of files from Trashcan who have the "lock" bit set

Hello Folks,

I am trying to delete a bunch of files from the Trashcan in MacOS 8.1, that have the(ir) lock bit set.
Going via the "Get Info" Dialog for each and every one of them would be a pain in the rear.
Isn't there a tool/gadget for this ?

The Alt key on the Mac keyboard is the solution.
How to access it with emulators will differ with the keyboard mapping.

I can do on Android. Now the key on the other hand ...
Thx for the tip, I'll give it a try.
Update: Worked like a charm- thx again.
