EXTENDED DESCRIPTION

       The arcrm command deletes files on grid storage elements and indexing  services.   In  the
       case  of  an  indexing service url all physical instances of the file corresponding to the
       given locations are deleted and unregistered. If an indexing service url is given  without
       locations,  all  physical  instances and all meta-information about file are deleted.  For
       more information on ARC URL syntax please read "Protocols, Uniform Resource Locators (URL)
       and Extensions Supported in ARC" [NORDUGRID-TECH-7]

       If  url  starts  from  '@', the remaining argument is assumed to be a path to a local file
       containing a list of URLs, one per line.  In this case arcrm performs like it were  called
       with all those URLs as arguments.

       Depending  on  the  installed  libraries  (check with -P ), the following protocols may be
       used: file  (file://  prefix  may  be omitted), http,  https,  httpg,  ftp,  gsiftp,  srm,
       root.

FILES

       ~/.arc/client.conf
              Some  options  can  be  given  default  values by specifying them in the ARC client
              configuration file. By using the --conffile option a different  configuration  file
              can be used than the default.

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES

       X509_USER_PROXY
              The location of the user's Grid proxy file. Shouldn't be set unless the proxy is in
              a non-standard location.

       ARC_LOCATION
              The location where ARC is installed can be  specified  by  this  variable.  If  not
              specified  the  install  location  will  be determined from the path to the command
              being executed, and if this fails a WARNING will  be  given  stating  the  location
              which will be used.

       ARC_PLUGIN_PATH
              The  location  of ARC plugins can be specified by this variable. Multiple locations
              can be specified by separating them by : (; in Windows). The  default  location  is
              $ARC_LOCATION/lib/arc (\ in Windows).

EXAMPLE

       arcrm gsiftp://example.com/grid/file.dat

NOTES

       Lack of recursion is a feature.
