10.8 Uninstalling

Having installed all of these files to `/usr/local', it might be difficult to remember which particular files belong to each installation. In the case of an executable, the uninstallation requires no magic, but when uninstalling a Libtool library all of the files which comprise the implementation of the Libtool library in question must be uninstalled:

$ libtool rm -f /usr/local/bin/hello
rm -f /usr/local/bin/hello
$ libtool rm -f /usr/local/lib/
rm -f /usr/local/lib/ /usr/local/lib/ \
/usr/local/lib/ /usr/local/lib/ \
$ libtool rm -f /usr/local/lib/
rm -f /usr/local/lib/ /usr/local/lib/ \
/usr/local/lib/ /usr/local/lib/ \

Using libtool to perform the uninstallation in this way ensures that all of the files that it installed, including any additional soft links required by the architecture versioning scheme for shared archives, are removed with a single command.

Having explored the use of libtool from the command line, the next chapter will discuss how to integrate libtool into the configury of your GNU Autotools based projects.
