cargo-clean - Remove generated artifacts
cargo clean [options]
Remove artifacts from the target directory that Cargo has generated in the past.
With no options, cargo clean will delete the entire target directory.
When no packages are selected, all packages and all dependencies in the workspace are cleaned.
-p spec..., --package spec...
This may also be specified with the build.target config value <https://doc.rust-lang.org/cargo/reference/config.html>.
Note that specifying this flag makes Cargo run in a different mode where the target artifacts are placed in a separate directory. See the build cache <https://doc.rust-lang.org/cargo/guide/build-cache.html> documentation for more details.
May also be specified with the term.color config value <https://doc.rust-lang.org/cargo/reference/config.html>.
These may be used in environments where you want to assert that the Cargo.lock file is up-to-date (such as a CI build) or want to avoid network access.
Beware that this may result in different dependency resolution than online mode. Cargo will restrict itself to crates that are downloaded locally, even if there might be a newer version as indicated in the local copy of the index. See the cargo-fetch(1) command to download dependencies before going offline.
May also be specified with the net.offline config value <https://doc.rust-lang.org/cargo/reference/config.html>.
--config KEY=VALUE or PATH
See the reference <https://doc.rust-lang.org/cargo/reference/environment-variables.html> for details on environment variables that Cargo reads.
