NAME

     cleanlinks - remove dangling symbolic links and empty direc-
     tories

SYNOPSIS

     cleanlinks

DESCRIPTION

     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.

DIAGNOSTICS

     A message will be printed upon encountering each dangling
     symlink and empty directory.

SEE ALSO

     lndir(1).
