pkgrm is a command line tool used in UNIX-based operating systems, specifically Sun Microsystems' Solaris, to remove software packages. It is primarily used for deinstalling packages that were installed using the pkgadd command. The pkgrm command allows users to remove packages one by one or in batch mode.

When used with appropriate options, pkgrm removes the specified package along with all its associated files, directories, and links from the system. Additionally, it allows users to remove only the package itself while retaining configuration files, ensuring a clean removal process.

pkgrm also provides options for interactive mode, where it prompts users to confirm the removal of a package and displays a summary of the actions to be taken. It also supports command line flags to suppress prompts, and to specify alternate package names or versions for removal.

By default, pkgrm does not remove dependencies installed by other packages, ensuring the stability of the system. However, it provides an option to remove unused dependencies as well.

Overall, pkgrm is a powerful command line tool that simplifies the process of removing software packages from Solaris systems, allowing for efficient management of installed software.
