NAME rmshit - keep a directory structure clean at all times SYNOPSIS rmshit [OPTIONS] DESCRIPTION rmshit was born out of plain rage and frustation, seeing that nobody seems to care about the XDG specifications, and dumping configuration files, temporary data and logs straight into $HOME. Even if you manually delete these files, they will be recreated when the Application of Sin wants to (when it's executed, seeing default data is missing, for example). The most well known application that does this, as of this writing, is Mozilla Firefox, creating $HOME/Desktop, over and over again. rmshit uses inotify to keep an eye on a directory structure, instantly removing data upon it's creation. OPTIONS -c, --clean clean dir(s) of unwanted files and exit -l, --lastlog show the last n number of removed files (default: 25) -k, --kill kill a running rmshit process -h, --help this help -m, --man manpage ENVIRONMENT rmshit watches the directories you specify in the configuration file. It should be placed in $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/rmshit/rmshit.conf or $HOME/.config/rmshit/rmshit.conf. The log file will be placed in $XDG_DATA_HOME/rmshit/rmshit.log. Entries will look like this: [* FILE] 2010-07-18 07:19:26: /home/scp1/.fehrc [* DIR] 2010-07-18 07:20:02: /home/scp1/Desktop [ FILE] 2010-07-18 07:20:02: /home/scp1/.craprc The '*' indicates the file was already present when rmshit was started.
