  -f, --force=false      Force the removal of a running container (uses SIGKILL)
  -l, --link=false       Remove the specified link
  -v, --volumes=false    Remove the volumes associated with the container

Examples

$ docker rm /redis
/redis

This will remove the container referenced under the link /redis.

$ docker rm --link /webapp/redis
/webapp/redis

This will remove the underlying link between /webapp and the /redis containers removing all network communication.

$ docker rm --force redis
redis

The main process inside the container referenced under the link /redis will receive SIGKILL, then the container will be removed.

$ docker rm $(docker ps -a -q)

This command will delete all stopped containers. The command docker ps -a -q will return all existing container IDs and pass them to the rm command which will delete them. Any running containers will not be deleted.
