Clean Directories

The tool vovcleandir is used to delete unused files.

vovcleandir analyzes the directories passed as arguments and then enters an interactive loop in which you can choose to:
  • list all files to be removed
  • remove all or only selected files
  • quit
With the option -force, vovcleandir removes all unused files without asking for further input.
% vovcleandir -help
% vovcleandir
% vovcleandir -force
% vovcleandir *.vhdl
With the option -all, vovcleandir checks all known directories for unused stdout and stderr files.
% vovcleandir -all
