Removes dangling symbolic links and empty directories
The cleanlinks program searches the directory tree descended from the current directory for symbolic links whose targets do not exist, and removes them. It then removes all empty directories in that directory tree. It is useful for cleaning up a shadow link tree created with 'lndir' after files have been removed from the real directory.
