Flags

-i

Ignore case

-r

Use basic regular expressions instead of wildcards

-e

Use extended regular expressions instead of wildcards

-f

Force removal (required for actual deletion of files)

-b

Remove base raster maps

--help

Print usage summary

--verbose

Verbose module output

--quiet

Quiet module output

--ui

Force launching GUI dialog

Parameters

type=datatype[,datatype,...] [required]

Data type(s)
Options: raster, raster_3d, vector, label, region, group, all
raster: raster map(s)
raster_3d: 3D raster map(s)
vector: vector map(s)
label: paint label file(s)
region: region definition(s)
group: imagery group(s)
all: all types

name=string[,string,...]

Name of file(s) to remove

ignore=string[,string,...]

Name of file(s) to ignore (default: none)

pattern=string

File name search pattern

exclude=string

File name exclusion pattern (default: none)

Description

g.remove removes data files matching a pattern given by wildcards or POSIX Extended Regular Expressions. If the -f force flag is not given then nothing is removed, instead the list of selected file names is printed to stdout as a preview of the files to be deleted.

Examples

Delete map1 and map2 raster maps in the current mapset:

g.remove -f type=raster name=tmp1,tmp2

Delete all raster and vector maps starting with "tmp_" in the current mapset:

# show matching raster and vector maps but do not delete yet (as verification)
g.remove type=raster,vector pattern="tmp_*"
# actually delete the matching raster and vector maps
g.remove -f type=raster,vector pattern="tmp_*"

Delete all vector maps starting with "stream_" in the current mapset, but exclude those ending with "_final":

g.remove -f type=vector pattern="stream_*" exclude="*_final"
