dl is a perl script which provides a quick solution to the difficulty of recovering deleted files on most UNIX filesystems. Files given to dl are compressed, moved to a private backup directory, and deleted only when they haven't been recovered after a configurable amount of time. For more information, see the README file.

dl is free software, protected under the terms of the GNU General Public License.
