'cn' is a counterpart for rm, which moves files into the trashcan. It is meant to be used instead of rm, such that one's fingers get into "good habits", and thus avoid accidentally rm-ing the wrong thing. 'cn' will confirm once, by default (even for directories), but can be made silent. It attempts to autodetect the location of the trash if KDE/GNOME are running. It can also handles perverse cases, such as trashing a file which is already in the trash, or deleting multiple files with the same name.
