pmempool-rm -- Remove (unlink) poolset files


$ pmempool rm [<options>] <file>..


The pmempool invoked with rm command removes (unlinks) all files specified in command line arguments. If the specified file is a poolset file all parts will be removed. All files are removed using the unlink(3) call. Without specifying the -i|--interactive option, the rm command prompts only before removing write-protected files. If specified file does not exist the rm command terminates with error code. The -f|--force command ignores non-existing files and never prompts before removing a file. See EXAMPLES section for example usage of the rm command.
