+git-rm(1)
+=========
+
+NAME
+----
+git-rm - Remove files from the working tree and from the index.
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+'git-rm' [-f] [-n] [-v] [--] <file>...
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+A convenience wrapper for git-update-index --remove. For those coming
+from cvs, git-rm provides an operation similar to "cvs rm" or "cvs
+remove".
+
+
+OPTIONS
+-------
+<file>...::
+ Files to remove from the index and optionally, from the
+ working tree as well.
+
+-f::
+ Remove files from the working tree as well as from the index.
+
+-n::
+ Don't actually remove the file(s), just show if they exist in
+ the index.
+
+-v::
+ Be verbose.
+
+--::
+ This option can be used to separate command-line options from
+ the list of files, (useful when filenames might be mistaken
+ for command-line options).
+
+
+DISCUSSION
+----------
+
+The list of <file> given to the command is fed to `git-ls-files`
+command to list files that are registered in the index and
+are not ignored/excluded by `$GIT_DIR/info/exclude` file or
+`.gitignore` file in each directory. This means two things:
+
+. You can put the name of a directory on the command line, and the
+ command will remove all files in it and its subdirectories (the
+ directories themselves are never removed from the working tree);
+
+. Giving the name of a file that is not in the index does not
+ remove that file.
+
+
+EXAMPLES
+--------
+git-rm Documentation/\\*.txt::
+
+ Removes all `\*.txt` files from the index that are under the
+ `Documentation` directory and any of its subdirectories. The
+ files are not removed from the working tree.
++
+Note that the asterisk `\*` is quoted from the shell in this
+example; this lets the command include the files from
+subdirectories of `Documentation/` directory.
+
+git-rm -f git-*.sh::
+
+ Remove all git-*.sh scripts that are in the index. The files
+ are removed from the index, and (because of the -f option),
+ from the working tree as well. Because this example lets the
+ shell expand the asterisk (i.e. you are listing the files
+ explicitly), it does not remove `subdir/git-foo.sh`.
