       cargo-clean - Remove generated artifacts


       cargo clean [OPTIONS]


       Remove artifacts from the target directory that Cargo has generated in the past.

       With no options, cargo clean will delete the entire target directory.


   Package Selection
       When no packages are selected, all packages and all dependencies in the workspace are

       -p SPEC..., --package SPEC...
           Clean only the specified packages. This flag may be specified multiple times. See
           cargo-pkgid(1) for the SPEC format.

   Clean Options
           This option will cause cargo clean to remove only the doc directory in the target

           Clean all artifacts that were built with the release or bench profiles.

       --target-dir DIRECTORY
           Directory for all generated artifacts and intermediate files. May also be specified
           with the CARGO_TARGET_DIR environment variable, or the config value
           <>. Defaults to target in the
           root of the workspace.

       --target TRIPLE
           Clean for the given architecture. The default is the host architecture. The general
           format of the triple is <arch><sub>-<vendor>-<sys>-<abi>. Run rustc --print
           target-list for a list of supported targets.

           This may also be specified with the config value

   Display Options
       -v, --verbose
           Use verbose output. May be specified twice for "very verbose" output which includes
           extra output such as dependency warnings and build script output. May also be
           specified with the term.verbose config value

       -q, --quiet
           No output printed to stdout.

       --color WHEN
           Control when colored output is used. Valid values:

           ·   auto (default): Automatically detect if color support is available on the

           ·   always: Always display colors.

           ·   never: Never display colors.

           May also be specified with the term.color config value

   Manifest Options
       --manifest-path PATH
           Path to the Cargo.toml file. By default, Cargo searches for the Cargo.toml file in the
           current directory or any parent directory.

       --frozen, --locked
           Either of these flags requires that the Cargo.lock file is up-to-date. If the lock
           file is missing, or it needs to be updated, Cargo will exit with an error. The
           --frozen flag also prevents Cargo from attempting to access the network to determine
           if it is out-of-date.

           These may be used in environments where you want to assert that the Cargo.lock file is
           up-to-date (such as a CI build) or want to avoid network access.

           Prevents Cargo from accessing the network for any reason. Without this flag, Cargo
           will stop with an error if it needs to access the network and the network is not
           available. With this flag, Cargo will attempt to proceed without the network if

           Beware that this may result in different dependency resolution than online mode. Cargo
           will restrict itself to crates that are downloaded locally, even if there might be a
           newer version as indicated in the local copy of the index. See the cargo-fetch(1)
           command to download dependencies before going offline.

           May also be specified with the net.offline config value

   Common Options
       -h, --help
           Prints help information.

       -Z FLAG...
           Unstable (nightly-only) flags to Cargo. Run cargo -Z help for details.


       See the reference <>
       for details on environment variables that Cargo reads.


           Cargo succeeded.

           Cargo failed to complete.


        1. Remove the entire target directory:

               cargo clean

        2. Remove only the release artifacts:

               cargo clean --release
