       wdel - A wget-like program for deleting files on ftp servers


       wdel [option]... [URL [file]...]...


       Wdel is a free utility that is able to delete files on an ftp server.

       Wdel  is non-interactive and background-capable. It can delete files or
       whole directories and is meant to be a robust client even for  unstable
       connections  and  will  therefore  retry  to  delete  a  file,  if  the
       connection broke.

       Wdel supports connections through proxies, allowing you to use it in an
       environment that can access the internet only via a proxy or to provide
       anonymity by hiding your ip-address to the server.  For SOCKSv5-proxies
       Wdel  supports  also  listening mode, allowing you to use port-mode ftp
       through a proxy (useful if the remote ftp is behind  a  firewall  or  a


       URLs are recognized by the ftp://-prefix.

       Wdel  first  reads the URLs from the command line, and associates every
       file with the last URL until a new URL is  found  (note  that  this  is
       different  from  wput).  Then,  it  reads the --input-file (if any) and
       parses the URLs in the same way.  So you can specify e.g. one  URL  and
       read all filenames from a file.

       If there are no explicit filenames given for a singe URL, then the last
       part of the URL is taken to be the file/directory  to  be  deleted.  If
       there  are filenames, then the last part of the URL is considered to be
       the directory where these files reside in. Slashes at the  end  of  the
       URL  or  the  filename  (in  case  it is a directory to be deleted) are


       There are no special options introduced by Wdel. All of Wput’s  options
       may  be  supplied, although some will not be of any effect because they
       do not apply for the process of deleting files. Please see wput(1)  for
       a description of the options.


       Many options can be set in a wputrc file. For its documentation consult
       the sample file provided by Wput.

       wput(1) describes all setable options.  Not  all  apply  for  wdel  too
