cleanlinks - remove dangling symbolic links and empty directories
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.
A message will be printed upon encountering each dangling symlink and empty directory.
The version of the cleanlinks included in this X.Org Foundation release was originally
written by David Dawes wrote as a part of XFree86.
Colin Watson wrote this manual page, originally for the Debian Project.
