cleanlinks(1) UNIX Programmer's Manual cleanlinks(1)
cleanlinks - remove dangling symbolic links and empty direc- tories
The cleanlinks program searches the directory tree descended from the current directory for symbolic links whose targets do not exist, and removes them. It then removes all empty directories in that directory tree. cleanlinks is useful for cleaning up a shadow link tree created with lndir(1) after files have been removed from the real directory.
A message will be printed upon encountering each dangling symlink and empty directory.
David Dawes wrote the cleanlinks program for XFree86. Colin Watson wrote this manual page, originally for the Debian Project. XFree86 Version 4.5.0 1
