delp — The Free Pascal file deletion tool.

Synopsis

delp [options] directory

Description

delp deletes files in the specified directory that are left over from a Free Pascal compilation process. It knows what files can be produced by the compile steps and deletes any such files it finds. At the end it gives a summary of the number of files that were deleted, together with the amount of bytes freed by this process.

Usage

delp takes the following options at this time:

-e
Delete all executable files as well. This option has no effect on Linux.

Be more quiet. Normally, delp gives a count of the number of files deleted. If this option is given, no messages are displayed.
