NAME
       cleanlinks - remove dangling symbolic links and empty directories

SYNOPSIS
       cleanlinks

DESCRIPTION
       The  cleanlinks	program  searches the directory tree descended from the current directory
       for symbolic links whose targets do not exist, and removes  them.   It  then  removes  all
       empty directories in that directory tree.

       cleanlinks  is useful for cleaning up a shadow link tree created with lndir(1) after files
       have been removed from the real directory.

DIAGNOSTICS
       A message will be printed upon encountering each dangling symlink and empty directory.

SEE ALSO
       lndir(1).
