NAME

symlink_remove - Remove a symbolic link [Windows only]

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

symlink remove [-name] <file name> [-help]

DESCRIPTION

The symlink remove command removes a symbolic link to a file.

CAUTIONS

The symlink commands are only available on Windows platforms. On other platforms, use the rm command.

OPTIONS

[-name] <file name> Specify one or more symbolic links to remove. The -name is optional, but the file name is not.
-help Prints the online help for this command. All other valid options are ignored.

OUTPUT

This command has no output except error and help messages. If the command is passed a real file instead of a symlink, it prints symlink: ’file name’ is not a symlink instead of removing the file.

EXAMPLES

Given that file mylink is a link pointing to file myfile, the following commands will remove the link mylink:



   % symlink remove -name mylink
   % symlink remove mylink



PRIVILEGE REQUIRED

The issuer must have the l (look) and d (delete) permissions on the ACL of the directory that houses the symlink.
