How to remove a file in Linux?
Published July 16, 2021
To remove a file in Linux, you can use the
rm command followed by a space and the name of the file in the Linux terminal.
For example, let's say you have a file called
myFile.txt and wants to delete it. You can use the
rm command like this in the terminal,
# Delete a file in Linux rm myFile.txt
Executing the above command will delete the
myFile.txt file from the directory.
See the execution of the above command live in repl.it.
To delete more than 1 file at once, you can pass the name of the files with space in between them like this,
# Delete more than 1 file in Linux rm myFile.txt myFile2.txt myFile3.txt
That's it 😃!
