NAME
       rm - remove files or directories

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 --interactive=always option is given,  rm
       prompts  the  user for whether to remove the file.  If the response is not affirma-
       tive, 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  recur-
              sively.   Less intrusive than -i, while still giving 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

       --version
              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
       commands:

              rm -- -foo

              rm ./-foo

       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.
