symlink_remove - Remove a symbolic link [Windows only]
symlink remove [-name] <file name> [-help]
The symlink remove command removes a symbolic link to a file.
The symlink commands are only available on Microsoft Windows platforms. On UNIX platforms, use the rm command.
Specify one or more symbolic links to remove. The -name is optional, but the file name is not.
Prints the online help for this command. All other valid options are ignored.
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.
Given that file
mylink is a link pointing to file
the following commands will remove the link
% symlink remove -name mylink % symlink remove mylink
The issuer must have the
l (lookup) and
d (delete) permissions on the ACL of the directory that houses the symlink.
symlink(1), symlink_list(1), symlink_make(1)
