Remove file in Linux


The rm command is used for removing files and directories. To remove a file:
$ rm file

If you use the -i option, you’ll be prompted before removing the file:
$ rm -i file

You can also delete more files at once:
rm file1 file2

Be careful with the rm command! As I already told you, Linux doesn’t have any undo commands, and it doesn’t put files into Trash where you can save them later. Once you’ve deleted a file, it’s bye-bye!
