SYNOPSIS

unstow [-nv] [-d stow_dir] [-t target_dir] packages ...

DESCRIPTION

The unstow command is a utility to unstow packages. It performs much faster than "stow-D " because unstow searches a package directory for stowed files while stow(1) searches the target directory for matching symlinks.

CAVEATS

unstow does not check if a symlink to be removed points to a file of the named package, so please double check if you are specifying the correct package.

OPTIONS

The following command line arguments are supported:

-h Show the help screen and exit.

-V Show Unstow and Stow version numbers and exit.

-n Do not actually make changes.

-v Be verbose.

-d DIR Set stow dir to DIR (default is current dir).

-t DIR Set target to DIR (default is parent of stow dir).

SEE ALSO

stow(1)

HISTORY

The unstow utility was written in around 2008 and first released on December 2009.
