       rm - remove files or directories

       rm [OPTION]... FILE...

       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 --interactive=always option is given, rm prompts the
       user for whether to remove the file.  If the response is  not  affirmative,  the  file  is

       Remove (unlink) the FILE(s).

       -f, --force
              ignore nonexistent files and arguments, 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 giving protection against most mistakes

              prompt according to WHEN: never, once (-I), or always (-i);  without  WHEN,  prompt

              when  removing a hierarchy recursively, skip any directory that is on a file system
              different from that of the corresponding command line argument

              do not treat '/' specially

              do not remove '/' (default)

       -r, -R, --recursive
              remove directories and their contents recursively

       -d, --dir
              remove empty directories

       -v, --verbose
              explain what is being done

       --help display this help and exit

              output version information and exit

       By default, rm does not remove directories.  Use the --recursive  (-r  or  -R)  option  to
       remove each listed directory, too, along with all of its contents.

       To  remove  a file whose name starts with a '-', for example '-foo', use one of these com-

              rm -- -foo

              rm ./-foo

       Note that if you use rm to remove a file, it might be possible to recover some of its con-
       tents,  given  sufficient  expertise and/or time.  For greater assurance that the contents
       are truly unrecoverable, consider using shred.
