SYNOPSIS

 % trash-u --help

DESCRIPTION

This command-line program is an interface to File::Trash::Undoable, which in turn uses File::Trash::FreeDesktop.

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.

USING AS rm REPLACEMENT

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

    This include: -i/-I/--interactive, --one-file-system, --no-preserve-root.
