Unable to use yes -command to all questions when removing


I get a long list of read-only protected files when I run

rm -r trunk | yes

I am trying to answer yes to all by one command.

How can you answer yes to all questions?

Best Solution

You have it backward, the correct way is:

yes | rm -r trunk

But the better command would be to have rm not ask you in the first place with:

rm -rf trunk
