Trash Can
Command line recycle bin

Trash Can is a command line recycle bin for GNU/Linux and *NIX-based systems. ksh, bash, or zsh is needed. It can remove files and restore them in their original path, delete single files from the trash can, automatically delete 'core' and 'dead.letter' files, automatically purge the trash over X days old, empty the trash, and display the disk usage and stored files. It is compressed to take up less room, and entire directories can be restored/deleted. It will prompt the user if restoring over an existing file. An installation script is included.
