Given a file name, this script verifies if it's a broken link or not. Being a broken one, it gets deleted.

This script is very useful when used together with "find" to find stray, broken links, as in "find /System/Index | RemoveBroken".

Example:

    find /System/Index | RemoveBroken 

This is functionally equivalent to

    find /System/Index -xtype l -delete
