NAME

cargo-uninstall - Remove a Rust binary  

SYNOPSIS

cargo uninstall [OPTIONS] [SPEC...]  

DESCRIPTION

This command removes a package installed with cargo-install(1). The SPEC argument is a package ID specification of the package to remove (see cargo-pkgid(1)).

By default all binaries are removed for a crate but the --bin and --example flags can be used to only remove particular binaries.

The installation root is determined, in order of precedence:

--root option

CARGO_INSTALL_ROOT environment variable

install.root Cargo config value <https://doc.rust-lang.org/cargo/reference/config.html>

CARGO_HOME environment variable

$HOME/.cargo
 

OPTIONS

--root DIR

Display Options

-v, --verbose

-q, --quiet

No output printed to stdout.

--color WHEN

Control when colored output is used. Valid values:

auto (default): Automatically detect if color support is available on the terminal.
