rpm uninstall

sorry for the elementary question..but i've just never had to do it. but if i used a basic install using rpm

rpm -ivh *.rpm
rpm -Uvh *.rpm

how do i use rpm to uninstall? spefically i need to get tripwire off and reinstalled. fresh new start if you will.

can i just use: rpm -e *.rpm

the command should be rpm -e <rpm package>

try the commands "man rpm" and/or "rpm --help"
