rfrm - remove remote files and directories
rfrm [ -f ] [ -r ] directory...
rfrm provides an interface to the shift remote file I/O daemon (rfiod) for removing entries for one or more files from a directory.
If filename is a symbolic link, the link will be removed, but the file or directory to which it refers will not be deleted.
The filename or directory argument is either a remote path name of the form:
or a local path name (not containing the :/ character combination).
The following options apply to rfrm:
-f Never prompts.
-r Recursively remove directories and subdirectories in the argument list. The directory will be emptied of files and removed.
Although rfrm supports a list of file names or directories it does not support regular expressions (regexp(5)). For instance,
will not work.
