NAME
       ttrm - remove files or directories and inform the ToolTalk service

SYNOPSIS
       ttrm [-frL] pathname ...

       ttrm -h | -v

DESCRIPTION
       The ttrm utility invokes rm(1) to remove files and directories and
       informs ToolTalk about its actions so that the ToolTalk objects associ-
       ated with the deleted files and directories can also be deleted.

       The ttrm utility removes the ToolTalk objects before it removes the
       files and does not check whether the file-removing operation will suc-
       ceed before performing the object-removing operation.

OPTIONS
       The following options are available:

          -f    Force.  Do not report any errors, and pass the -f option to
                rm(1).

          -h    Write a help message for invoking ttrm and then exit.

          -L    Remove the ToolTalk objects of the files or directories, but
                do not invoke rm(1) to remove the actual files or directories.

          -r    Recursively remove the ToolTalk objects of any directories
                named, along with their files (including any subdirectories
                and their files), and pass the -r option to rm(1).

          -v    Write the version number of ttrm and then exit.

       The -i or -R options to rm(1) are not supported.

OPERANDS
       The following operand is supported:

          pathname
                A pathname of a file to be removed.

STDIN
       Not used.

INPUT FILES
       The input files specified as operands can be of any file type.

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES
       The following environment variables affect the execution of ttrm:

          LANG           Provide a default value for the internationalization
                         variables that are unset or null.  If LANG is unset
                         or null, the corresponding value from the implementa-
                         tion-specific default locale will be used.  If any of
                         the internationalization variables contains an
                         invalid setting, the utility behaves as if none of
                         the variables had been defined.

          LC_ALL         If set to a non-empty string value, override the val-
                         ues of all the other internationalization variables.

          LC_MESSAGES    Determine the locale that is used to affect the for-
                         mat and contents of diagnostic messages written to
                         standard error and informative messages written to
                         standard output.

          NLSPATH        Determine the location of message catalogues for the
                         processing of LC_MESSAGES.

RESOURCES
       None.

ASYNCHRONOUS EVENTS
       The ttrm utility takes the standard action for all signals.

STDOUT
       When the -h option is used, ttrm writes to standard output a help mes-
       sage in an unspecified format.

       When the -v option is used, ttrm writes to standard output a version
       number in an unspecified format.

STDERR
       Used only for diagnostic messages.

OUTPUT FILES
       None.

EXTENDED DESCRIPTION
       None.

EXIT STATUS
       The following exit values are returned:

           0  All files and ToolTalk objects were removed successfully.

          >0  An error occurred or the invoked rm(1) command exited with a
              non-zero value.

CONSEQUENCES OF ERRORS
       Default.

FILES
       /mountpoint/TT_DB   The directory used as a database for the ToolTalk
                           objects of files in the file system mounted at
                           /mountpoint.

APPLICATION USAGE
       None.

EXAMPLES
       None.
