apt-get autoremove for mac osx?
« on: July 02, 2012, 11:33:19 PM »
I'm looking for something like apt-get autoremove (in mobile terminal) which is for mac osx. I'm sure i have a bunch of leftover files just hogging space that have no use from previous deleted programs. Is there a script or a program i can use to find and delete this old files?

Not really. Most app resources are located in the app bundle.

If anything, they make folders in the ~/Library/Application Support/ dir. (look for the name of the app)
And maybe a file or 2 in ~/Library/Preferences/ .  (look for com.[companyname].[appname] files)
