display file operations due to occur at reboot 

Command


SYNOPSIS

pending -a

pending [-lv]

gpending


DESCRIPTION

pending displays a list of all file operations scheduled to occur when your system is next rebooted. It also gives you the opportunity to delete each of those pending file operations. You can schedule such operations with the -d option of mv and rm.

gpending is a graphical version of the pending utility. It displays a dialog showing the pending delete and rename operations in a format similar to the -v option described below. To refresh this display, click the Refresh button. To delete one or more operations, select those operations and click the Delete button. To delete all pending operations, click the Delete All button. When using Delete All, you should be careful to be sure that you actually want to prevent these operations from being performed.

Options

-a 

deletes all pending operations without asking for confirmation. When using this option, you should be careful to be sure that you actually want to prevent these operations from being performed.

-l 

lists all pending operations without prompting for deletion. No operations are deleted with this option.

-v 

displays pending operations in a verbose format. This format consists of up to four fields. The first field is either Delete or Rename indicating the type of operation. The second field is the file name being deleted or renamed. The third and fourth fields are only used for rename operations. The third field is either to or replacing and indicates whether or not the target of the rename operation is to be overwritten if it already exists. When this field has a value of replacing, the target file will be overwritten if it exits. When it has a value of to, the target file will not be overwritten. Finally, the fourth field is the target of the rename operation.
