                   Itanium(R)-Based Processor Family Only

 NAME    [Toc]    [Back]
      efi_rm - remove an EFI file

 SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]
      efi_rm [-d devicefile] file

 DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]
      efi_rm removes an EFI file.

      The EFI file system is based on the FAT file system and used by the
      Itanium(R)-based system BIOS to locate an HP-UX bootloader.  See

      devicefile should be the device file for the EFI volume.

      If file is a directory, efi_rm prints a diagnostic message and returns
      without removing the directory; use efi_rmdir(1M) to remove EFI
      directories.  file should be relative to the root of the EFI volume
      specified by devicefile, not to an HP-UX file system.

    Options    [Toc]    [Back]
      efi_rm recognizes the following option:

      -d devicefile  devicefile is the device special file of the EFI file
                     system from which the file is to be removed.  Without
                     the -d option, efi_rm uses the device file specified in
                     the environment variable EFI_PARTITION if it is
                     defined.  The -d option overrides the EFI_PARTITION
                     environment variable.

 RETURN VALUE    [Toc]    [Back]
      efi_rm returns exit code 0 if the file is removed successfully.
      Otherwise it prints a diagnostic message and returns nonzero.

          0      Successful completion.
         >0      Error condition occurred.

 EXAMPLES    [Toc]    [Back]
      Remove bootfile from /hp-ux/efi/ of device file /dev/rdsk/c1t4d0s1,
      which contains an EFI file system:

           efi_rm -d /dev/rdsk/c1t4d0s1 /hp-ux/efi/bootfile
