rm

Remove files or directories. More information: https://www.gnu.org/software/coreutils/rm.

  • Remove files from arbitrary locations:

rm {{path/to/file}} {{path/to/another/file}}

  • Recursively remove a directory and all its subdirectories:

rm -r {{path/to/directory}}

  • Forcibly remove a directory, without prompting for confirmation or showing error messages:

rm -rf {{path/to/directory}}

  • Interactively remove multiple files, with a prompt before every removal:

rm -i {{file(s)}}

  • Remove files in verbose mode, printing a message for each removed file:

rm -v {{path/to/directory/*}}
