When it's too hard to say goodbye… an alternative to `rm`.
A simple command line utility to move files/folders to a “trash” folder before deleting them.
From the command line:
trash [file/directory name(s)] # example: trash potentially-important-file.txt trash this-folder that-folder some-random-file.txt
Handles multiple files with the same name
trash ~/Documents/Groceries/shopping-list.txt trash ~/Documents/Christmas/shopping-list.txt trash ~/Documents/AutoParts/shopping-list.txt
The trash will contain:
shopping-list.txt # originally ~/Documents/Groceries/shopping-list.txt
shopping-list01.txt # originally ~/Documents/Christmas/shopping-list.txt
shopping-list02.txt # originally ~/Documents/AutoParts/shopping-list.txt
You will find the files that you've trashed in ~/.Trash
gem install trash

Note on Patches/Pull Requests
Fork the project.
Make your feature addition or bug fix.
Add tests for it. This is important so I don't break it in a future version unintentionally.
Commit, do not mess with rakefile, version, or history. (if you want to have your own version, that is fine but bump version in a commit by itself I can ignore when I pull)
Send me a pull request. Bonus points for topic branches.
