-f = Force, you better be sure you know you want those files gone. It won't prompt or warn you no matter what or how much you're deleting. So an rm -rf command will delete a directory and everything beneath it, without warnings or prompts. Its probably the best all-purpose, mess up your computer command there is. Be absolutely triple certain before you use it.


But I don't know what sodu is. Never heard of sodu.
