File::Remove - Remove files and directories
use File::Remove qw(remove); # removes (without recursion) several files remove qw( *.c *.pl ); # removes (with recursion) several directories remove \1, qw( directory1 directory2 ); # removes (with recursion) several files and directories remove \1, qw( file1 file2 directory1 *~ );
File::Remove::remove removes files and directories. It acts like rm, for the most part. Although unlink can be given a list of files, it will not remove directories; this module remedies that. It also accepts wildcards, * and ?, as arguments for filenames.
Removes files and directories. Directories are removed recursively like in rm -rf if the first argument is a reference to a scalar that evaluates to true. If the first arguemnt is a reference to a scalar then it is used as the value of the recursive flag. By default it's false so only pass \1 to it. In list context it returns a list of files/directories removed, in scalar context it returns the number of files/directories removed. The list/number should match what was passed in if everything went well.
Just calls remove. It's there for people who get tired of typing 'remove'.

Taken over by Richard Soderberg, <email@example.com>, so as to port it to File::Spec.
