NAME

  atrm - Removes jobs spooled by at

SYNOPSIS

  atrm [-a] [-f	 | -i] [job_number...] | [user...]

  The atrm command removes jobs	that were created with the at command.

OPTIONS

  -a  Removes all jobs belonging to the	person invoking	atrm.  If invoked by
      a	privileged user, all jobs on the queue are removed.

  -f  Suppresses the printing of all information about the jobs	being
      removed.

  -i  Prompts before a job is removed; a response of y,	or the locale's
      equivalent of y, causes the job to be removed.

  -   Obsolete version of -a.

DESCRIPTION

  If one or more job numbers is	specified, atrm	attempts to remove only	those
  jobs.

  If one or more usernames is specified, all jobs belonging to those users
  are removed.	This form of invoking atrm is useful only if you have
  superuser authority.

EXAMPLES

  To remove job	number 62169200.a, created by user chinn, from the queue
  created by the at command, enter:

       atrm chinn.62169200.a

  Note that .a specifies an at job for sh.  (.f	specifies an at	job for	csh,
  and .e specifies an at job for ksh.)
