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  --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.

       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

              prompt according to WHEN: never,  once  (-I),  or  always  (-i).
              Without WHEN, prompt always

              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

       -v, --verbose
              explain what is being done

       --help display this help and exit


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