    Command:

    git-rm

    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           git rm [-f | --force] [-n] [-r] [--cached] [--ignore-unmatch] [--quiet]
           [--] <file>...
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           Remove files from the index, or from the working tree and the index.
           git rm will not remove a file from just your working directory. (There
           is no option to remove a file only from the working tree and yet keep
           it in the index; use /bin/rm if you want to do that.) The files being
           removed have to be identical to the tip of the branch, and no updates
           to their contents can be staged in the index, though that default
           behavior can be overridden with the -f option. When --cached is given,
           the staged content has to match either the tip of the branch or the
           file on disk, allowing the file to be removed from just the index.
    
    
    

    OPTIONS

           <file>...
               Files to remove. Fileglobs (e.g.  *.c) can be given to remove all
               matching files. If you want git to expand file glob characters, you
               may need to shell-escape them. A leading directory name (e.g.  dir
               to remove dir/file1 and dir/file2) can be given to remove all files
               in the directory, and recursively all sub-directories, but this
               requires the -r option to be explicitly given.
    
           -f, --force
               Override the up-to-date check.
    
           -n, --dry-run
               Don't actually remove any file(s). Instead, just show if they exist
               in the index and would otherwise be removed by the command.
    
           -r
               Allow recursive removal when a leading directory name is given.
    
           --
               This option can be used to separate command-line options from the
               list of files, (useful when filenames might be mistaken for
               command-line options).
    
           --cached
               Use this option to unstage and remove paths only from the index.
               Working tree files, whether modified or not, will be left alone.
    
           --ignore-unmatch
               Exit with a zero status even if no files matched.
    
           -q, --quiet
    
               git rm normally outputs one line (in the form of an rm command) for
               each file removed. This option suppresses that output.
    
    
    

    DISCUSSION

    
       Using  git commit -a""
           If you intend that your next commit should record all modifications of
           tracked files in the working tree and record all removals of files that
           have been removed from the working tree with rm (as opposed to git rm),
           use git commit -a, as it will automatically notice and record all
           removals. You can also have a similar effect without committing by
           using git add -u.
    
       Using  git add -A""
           When accepting a new code drop for a vendor branch, you probably want
           to record both the removal of paths and additions of new paths as well
           as modifications of existing paths.
    
           Typically you would first remove all tracked files from the working
           tree using this command:
    
               git ls-files -z | xargs -0 rm -f
    
           and then "untar" the new code in the working tree. Alternately you
           could "rsync" the changes into the working tree.
    
           After that, the easiest way to record all removals, additions, and
           modifications in the working tree is:
    
               git add -A
    
           See git-add(1).
    
       Other ways
           If all you really want to do is to remove from the index the files that
           are no longer present in the working tree (perhaps because your working
           tree is dirty so that you cannot use git commit -a), use the following
           command:
    
               git diff --name-only --diff-filter=D -z | xargs -0 git rm --cached
    
    
    

    EXAMPLES

           git rm Documentation/\\*.txt
               Removes all \*.txt files from the index that are under the
               Documentation directory and any of its subdirectories.
    
               Note that the asterisk \* is quoted from the shell in this example;
               this lets git, and not the shell, expand the pathnames of files and
               subdirectories under the Documentation/ directory.
    
           git rm -f git-*.sh
               Because this example lets the shell expand the asterisk (i.e. you
               are listing the files explicitly), it does not remove
