RCDN(1)			FreeBSD	General	Commands Manual		       RCDN(1)

NAME
     rcdn -- remove dotfiles as	managed	by rcm

SYNOPSIS
     rcdn [-hKkqVv] [-B	hostname] [-d dir] [-I excl_pat] [-S excl_pat]
	  [-s excl_pat]	[-t tag] [-U excl_pat] [-u excl_pat] [-x excl_pat]
	  [files ...]

DESCRIPTION
     This program will remove all the rc files that the	rcm(7) suite knows
     about. This can be	further	controlled with	the -t and -d flags.

     The files that are	removed	are symlinks. However, the COPY_ALWAYS setting
     in	rcrc(5)	modifies this. If a rc file is not a symlink but an ancestor
     directory is, that	directory is removed. If a rc file is not a symlink
     but is listed in COPY_ALWAYS the file is removed.

     The rcdn program will run hooks before and	after removing files, if these
     hooks exist. Hooks	are executable programs	inside the dotfiles directory,
     with the following	names: hooks/pre-down and hooks/post-down.  These
     hooks are run each	time rcdn is run and therefore must be idempotent.

     Hooks will	be executed one	at a time, sorted alphabetically. For in-
     stance, hooks/pre-down/animals will run before hooks/pre-down/aquariums,
     and hooks/pre-down/4-eyes will run	before
     hooks/post-down/2-u-nothing-compares.

     -B	HOSTNAME  treat	host-HOSTNAME as the host-specific directory instead
		  of computing it

     -d	DIR	  remove rc files from the DIR.	 This can be specified multi-
		  ple times.

     -h		  show usage instructions.

     -I	EXCL_PAT  remove rc files that match EXCL_PAT despite being excluded
		  by the -x flag or a setting in rcrc(5).  This	can be re-
		  peated with additional patterns. See lsrc(1),	EXCLUDE
		  PATTERN, for more details.

     -K		  skip pre- and	post-hooks

     -k		  run pre- and post-hooks. This	is the default.

     -q		  decrease verbosity

     -S	EXCL_PAT  when removing	dotfiles, any file that	matches	EXCL_PAT
		  should be treated as a file that was symlinked, even if it
		  is a directory. This can be repeated.

     -s	EXCL_PAT  when removing	dotfiles, any directory	that matches EXCL_PAT
		  should be recurred upon like normal. This is the default,
		  and is the opposite of -S.  This can be repeated.

     -t	TAG	  remove dotfiles according to TAG

     -U	EXCL_PAT  any rc file or directory that	matches	EXCL_PAT is considered
		  to have been installed without a leading dot when removing
		  them.	 Must be specified for rc files	or directories that
		  were indeed installed	without	a leading dot. This can	be re-
		  peated. See the documentation	of the -U option in lsrc(1)
		  for more information.

     -u	EXCL_PAT  any rc file or directory that	matches	EXCL_PAT is considered
		  to have been installed with a	leading	dot when removing
		  them.	 This is the default, and is the opposite of -U.  This
		  can be repeated. See the documentation of the	-u option in
		  lsrc(1) for more information.

     -v		  increase verbosity. This can be repeated for extra ver-
		  bosity.

     -V		  show the version number.

     -x	EXCL_PAT  do not remove	rc files that match EXCL_PAT.  This can	be re-
		  peated with additional patterns. See lsrc(1),	EXCLUDE
		  PATTERN, for more details.

     files	  only remove the specified file(s)
