DESCRIPTION

g.remove removes data files matching a pattern given by wildcards or POSIX Extended Regular Expressions. If the -f force flag is not given then nothing is removed, instead the list of selected file names is printed to stdout as a preview of the files to be deleted.

EXAMPLES

Delete map1 and map2 raster maps in the current mapset:
g.remove -f type=raster name=tmp1,tmp2
Delete all raster and vector maps starting with "tmp_" in the current mapset:
# show matching raster and vector maps but do not delete yet (as verification)
g.remove type=raster,vector pattern="tmp_*"

# actually delete the matching raster and vector maps
g.remove -f type=raster,vector pattern="tmp_*"
Delete all vector maps starting with "stream_" in the current mapset, but exclude those ending with "_final":
g.remove -f type=vector pattern="stream_*" exclude="*_final"
