Deleting a single file from the trash in Mac OS X Snow Leopard

Deleting a single file from the trash in Mac OS X Snow Leopard

In earlier versions of Mac OS X one could delete a file from the trash by opening a terminal window and typing rm ~/.Trash/file_i_want_to_delete. See this previous post.

My guess would be that that information is stored somewhere in the file link text, be that the .DS_Store file or the resource fork of the actual file. Either way it isn't going to accumulate or build up too much.
