NAME
       cleanlinks - remove dangling symbolic links and empty directories

SYNOPSIS
       cleanlinks

DESCRIPTION
       The  cleanlinks	program	searches the directory tree descended from the
       current directory for symbolic links whose targets do  not  exist,  and
       removes	them.  It then removes all empty directories in	that directory
       tree.

       cleanlinks is useful for	cleaning up a shadow link  tree	 created  with
       lndir(1)	after files have been removed from the real directory.

DIAGNOSTICS
       A  message  will	be printed upon	encountering each dangling symlink and
       empty directory.

SEE ALSO
       lndir(1).
