trash-u - Trash files, with undo/redo capability
This document describes version 0.11 of trash-u (from Perl distribution File-Trash-Undoable), released on 2014-05-17.
# trash some files, but in simulation mode, not really trashing the files % VERBOSE=1 trash-u --dry-run *.bak # trash some files, for real % trash-u *.bak # list trash contents % trash-u --list-contents # trash some more files % trash-u * .tmp # oops, made a mistake; no worry, let's undo; now previous trashing is reversed % trash-u --undo # undo again; now the *.bak files are also restored % trash-u --undo # redo; now the *.bak files are trashed again % trash-u --redo # show history % trash-u --history # forget history; past actions can no longer be undone/redone % trash-u --clear-history # empty trash; this action is not undoable (the point is to reclaim space) % trash-u --empty # display help for more options % trash-u --help
Features: undo/redo, dry run mode, per-filesystem trash dir.
This program is relatively new and have not yet been tested extensively. Use with caution.
trash-u can be used as rm replacement (a.k.a. alias) with some caveats:
trash-u deletes directories by default
That is, it behaves as if -R rm option is in effect.
Some rm options exist but do not have any effect (noop)
Some rm options are still missing/unknown
