ptrash — move file(s) to ~/.trash directory
ptrash [Options] file-name-1 [file-name-2 ...]
ptrash is a console based simple application. ptrash moves the named file(s) to trash directory located under the home directory of a user. In case if ~/.trash is non-existent, ptrash creates it for you and then moves the file(s) to this directory. By default, ptrash runs in non-interactive mode, which means it does not ask user if she is sure to move the file to ~/.trash even when the named file already exists in trash and proceeds with overwriting that file.
ptrash supports the following options
- -d --delete
Delete file(s) from trash
Enables an interactive moving of files to/from trash. ie. It asks for confirmation before over writing OR deleting any existing file.
- -r --restore
Restore a file from trash to it's original location
- -h --help
Prints this short usage help
- -v --verbose
Verbose operation mode
- -V --version
Displays the version information
cp(1) mv(1) rm(1) shred(1)
If you think you have found a bug in ptrash, please write to me with the ptrash-<version> string in the subject line, explaining precisely about the behaviour of ptrash.
ptrash does not facilitate moving of symbolic links to/from ~/.trash.
