Documented in clean.library

#' Clean TAF Library
#'
#' Selectively remove packages from the local TAF library if not listed in
#' \verb{SOFTWARE.bib}.
#'
#' @param folder location of local TAF library.
#' @param quiet whether to suppress messages about removed packages.
#' @param force whether to remove the local TAF library, regardless of how it
#'        compares to \verb{SOFTWARE.bib} entries.
#'
#' @return No return value, called for side effects.
#'
#' @note
#' For each package, the cleaning procedure selects between three cases:
#' \enumerate{
#' \item Installed package matches \verb{SOFTWARE.bib} - do nothing.
#' \item Installed package is not the version listed in \verb{SOFTWARE.bib} -
#'       remove.
#' \item Installed package is not listed in \verb{SOFTWARE.bib} - remove.
#' }
#'
#' The \code{taf.bootstrap} procedure cleans the TAF library, without requiring
#' the user to run \code{clean.library}. The main reason for a TAF user to run
#' \code{clean.library} directly is to experiment with installing and removing
#' different versions of software without modifying the \verb{SOFTWARE.bib}
#' file.
#'
#' @seealso
#' \code{\link{taf.bootstrap}} calls \code{clean.library} as part of the default
#' bootstrap procedure.
#'
#' \code{\link{taf.install}} installs a package in the local TAF library.
#'
#' \code{\link{clean.software}} cleans the local TAF software folder.
#'
#' \code{\link{clean.data}} cleans the \verb{bootstrap/data} folder.
#'
#' \code{\link{TAF-package}} gives an overview of the package.
