Stop Using `rm` in Bash. Use `del`
10 by raibosome | 4 comments on Hacker News.
We’ve all had our fair share of accidentally removing files. Instead of rm my_file.txt

or rm -rf my_folder

we do del my_file.txt

or del my_folder

where you can define your Bash alias for `del` in ~/.custom_aliases as function del() {
mv $* ~/.Trash
}

which simply moves your files/folders to the trash such that you can recover them easily later. What’s your alternative?
