- the location(s) to delete
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.
Some options can be given default values by specifying them in the
ARC client configuration file. By using the
option a different configuration file can be used than the default.
The location of the user's Grid proxy file. Shouldn't be set unless
the proxy is in a non-standard 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.
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).
Lack of recursion is a feature.
