       s3qlrm - Fast tree removal on S3QL file systems


          s3qlrm [options] <directory>


       S3QL is a file system for online data storage. Before using S3QL, make sure to consult the
       full documentation (rather than just  the  man  pages  which  only  briefly  document  the
       available userspace commands).

       The  s3qlrm  command  recursively  deletes  files  and directories on an S3QL file system.
       Although s3qlrm is faster than using e.g.  rm -r`, the main reason for  its  existence  is
       that it allows you to delete immutable trees (which can be created with s3qllock) as well.

       Be warned that there is no additional confirmation. The directory will be removed entirely
       and immediately.

       s3qlrm can only be called by the user that mounted the file system and (if the file system
       was mounted with --allow-other or --allow-root) the root user.


       The s3qlrm command accepts the following options:

          --debug-modules <modules>
                 Activate  debugging  output  from  specified  modules  (use  commas  to separate
                 multiple modules). Debug messages will be written to the target specified by the
                 --log option.

                 Activate  debugging output from all S3QL modules. Debug messages will be written
                 to the target specified by the --log option.

                 be really quiet

                 just print program version and exit


       s3qlrm may terminate with the following exit codes:

       0      Everything went well.

       1      An unexpected error occured. This may indicate a bug in the program.

       2      Invalid command line argument or configuration file key.


       The S3QL homepage is at

       The full S3QL documentation should also be installed  somewhere  on  your  system,  common
       locations are /usr/share/doc/s3ql or /usr/local/doc/s3ql.
