lfc-rm - remove LFC files or directories in the name server


lfc-rm [-a] [-f] [-i] filename...

lfc-rm [-f] [-i] -r dirname...


lfc-rm removes LFC files or directories in the name server. For directories either -r or
-R must be present. For regular files, it calls lfc_unlink while for directories, it
calls lfc_rmdir.

This requires write permission in the parent directory and the file itself. If write
permission on an entry is denied, the standard input is a terminal and the -f option is
not given, the prompt "override write protection" appears and if the response is not y,
the entry is not deleted. Entries directly under a protected directory are never deleted.

path specifies the LFC pathname. If path does not start with /, it is prefixed by the
content of the LFC_HOME environment variable.


The following options are supported:

-a Remove the metadata information about a file and the metadata information about the
replicas that it may have. Remember that this is a metadata-only operation, it
does not remove the replicas physically from the disk. Removing metadata entries
about replicas without removing the replicas from the disks leads to non-reachable
files on disk. Applies only to files, not directories.

-f Do not give an error message if the file/directory does not exist.

-i Request acknowledge before removing each individual entry.

-R Recursive mode (equivalent to -r).

-r Recursive mode.


This program returns 0 if the operation was successful or >0 if the operation failed.
