How do I uninstall packages in shell?

I like to install all my stuff in shell, since I have limited memory on my computer, and I was wondering if there was anyway to uninstall rpm packages in shell. I use Mandrake 8.1.

rpm -e package-name is the command line for uninstalling something.

rpm --help will tell you other things you can do.
