Latest comment: 4 May 2023 by Xijang in topic Include "rename" utilities

unrelated to the "rm" utility

Despite the last edit, I think trash management is related to rm. I agree that a full section might be overblown, but maybe a mention in "preventing data loss" could be interesting ? -- Apollo22 (talk) 20:38, 25 May 2019‎ (UTC)Reply[reply]

rm does not support "trash" or anything described on the linked page. -- Lahwaacz (talk) 20:44, 25 May 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Yes but utilies implementing trash management can be used as an alternative to rm -- Apollo22 (talk) 20:48, 25 May 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
For the only alternative listed in Trash management: -- Lahwaacz (talk) 20:53, 25 May 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I don't think alternatives need to be drop-in replacement. But as it does mark a significant change compared to rm, I now think it should be in the alternative section, and not in the first two. Also, some utilies like rmtrashAUR are compatible with rm. (by the way thanks for challenging me on this) Apollo22 (talk) 21:16, 25 May 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Include "rename" utilities

What would be the best way to include "rename" and "perl-rename" to the article? First I thought they could be "mv" alternatives on the Essentials table, but maybe it would be better to put "rename" in the Nonessentials table and "perl-rename" as one of its alternatives there.
