CARGO-UNINSTALL(1) General Commands Manual CARGO-UNINSTALL(1)

cargo-uninstall - Remove a Rust binary

cargo uninstall [options] [spec...]

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
CARGO_HOME environment variable
$HOME/.cargo

-p, --package spec...
Package to uninstall.

--bin name...

Only uninstall the binary name.

--root dir

Directory to uninstall packages from.

-v, --verbose
Use verbose output. May be specified twice for "very verbose" output which includes extra output such as dependency warnings and build script output. May also be specified with the term.verbose config value https://doc.rust-lang.org/cargo/reference/config.html.

-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.
always: Always display colors.
never: Never display colors.

May also be specified with the term.color config value https://doc.rust-lang.org/cargo/reference/config.html.

+toolchain
If Cargo has been installed with rustup, and the first argument to cargo begins with +, it will be interpreted as a rustup toolchain name (such as +stable or +nightly). See the rustup documentation https://rust-lang.github.io/rustup/overrides.html for more information about how toolchain overrides work.

-h, --help

Prints help information.

-Z flag

Unstable (nightly-only) flags to Cargo. Run cargo -Z help for details.

See the reference https://doc.rust-lang.org/cargo/reference/environment-variables.html for details on environment variables that Cargo reads.
