removepkg alternative


Ok i prefer to do full install until the day i learn how to use the installation tags . I was thinking that every time i remove a package the documentation and also all the menu entries are kept unattached. Any other way for clean deletions ???

removepkg removes all files listed in the /var/log/package/xxx coresponding file, if the menus were
added by the window manager, removepkg won't remove them as there were not installed with
installpkg

removepkg will not delete any empty folders; will not delete any files created by running the program; will not delete any files cretaed by the doinst.sh that was run whe the package was installed.
