rmw (ReMove to Waste) functions as a command line recycle bin/trash can
utility. Optionally, it can ReMove files to Desktop trash, restore files,
list files to be selected for restore, and purge (permanently delete)
files that were trashed x number of days ago.

Web site: https://github.com/andy5995/rmw/wiki

After rmw is installed, create the user configuration directory by typing
'rmw' and hitting enter. Afterward, it's recommended to copy /etc/rmwrc (or
/usr/local/etc/rmwrc) to $HOME/.config/rmw and then rename it to 'config':

'cd ~/.config/rmw'
'~/.config/rmw$ cp /etc/rmwrc .'
'~/.config/rmw$ mv rmwrc config'

Then edit the file to suit your needs.

At some point, rmw will automatically create a 'lastpurge' and 'lastrmw'
in that same directory.

== Configuration File ==

Documentation explaining the configuration can be found in 'rmwrc', and
extra examples in 'rmwrc_config_example'.

Waste folders will be created automatically. (e.g. if '$HOME/trash.rmw'
is listed in the config file, these 3 directories will be created:
$HOME/trash.rmw
$HOME/trash.rmw/files
$HOME/trash.rmw/info

== Purging ==

If purging is 'on', rmw will permanently delete files from the folders
specified in the configuration file after 'x' number of days. Purging
can be disabled by using 'purgeDays = 0' in configuration file. rmw will
only check once per day if it's time to purge. Use -g to force a check.
The day of the last purge is stored in $HOME/config/rmw/lastpurge

== Options ==:

-c, --config filename     use an alternate configuration
-l, --list                list waste directories
-p, --pause               wait for a keypress before exiting
-g, --purge               run purge even if it's been run today
-z, --restore <wildcard filename(s) pattern>
-s, --select              select files from list to restore
-u, --undo-last           undo last ReMove
-B, --bypass              bypass directory protection
-v, --verbose             increase output messages
-w, --warranty            display warranty
-V, --version             display version and license information

== -z option ==

While -z can restore files at the command line, you have to specify
the full path (wildcards ok).
Example: rmw -z ~/.trash.rmw/files/*.iso

The other way is be in the WASTE/files/ folder; then using only
the basename will work.

== Protected directories ==

explained:
if 'PROTECT = /home/andy' is specified in the config file, /home/andy, and
all dirs and files beneath it will be "protected". This warning will show
up:

"File is in protected directory: <filename/dir>"

And it will not get rmw'ed

WASTE folders and the rmw configuration/data directory are protected by
default (there is no need to add a 'PROTECT =' line for them.
