    Command:

    rm

    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           rm [OPTION]... FILE...
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           This  manual  page  documents  the  GNU version of rm.  rm removes each
           specified file.  By default, it does not remove directories.
    
           If the -I or --interactive=once option is given,  and  there  are  more
           than  three  files  or  the  -r,  -R, or --recursive are given, then rm
           prompts the user for whether to proceed with the entire operation.   If
           the response is not affirmative, the entire command is aborted.
    
           Otherwise,  if  a file is unwritable, standard input is a terminal, and
           the -f or --force  option  is  not  given,  or  the  -i  or  --interac-
           tive=always  option is given, rm prompts the user for whether to remove
           the file.  If the response is not affirmative, the file is skipped.
    
    
    

    OPTIONS

           Remove (unlink) the FILE(s).
    
           -f, --force
                  ignore nonexistent files, never prompt
    
           -i     prompt before every removal
    
           -I     prompt once before removing  more  than  three  files,  or  when
                  removing  recursively.  Less intrusive than -i, while still giv-
                  ing protection against most mistakes
    
           --interactive[=WHEN]
                  prompt according to WHEN: never,  once  (-I),  or  always  (-i).
                  Without WHEN, prompt always
    
           --one-file-system
                  when  removing  a hierarchy recursively, skip any directory that
                  is on a file system different from  that  of  the  corresponding
                  command line argument
    
           --no-preserve-root
                  do not treat '/' specially
    
           --preserve-root
                  do not remove '/' (default)
    
           -r, -R, --recursive
                  remove directories and their contents recursively
    
           -v, --verbose
                  explain what is being done
    
           --help display this help and exit
    
           Note that if you use rm to remove a file, it  is  usually  possible  to
           recover the contents of that file.  If you want more assurance that the
           contents are truly unrecoverable, consider using shred.
