Website is lacking information about uninstallation


I would like to uninstall F# from my Mac.
While I can find information on how to uninstall Mono, I can not find similar information on F#.
Can anyone help me?

There is nothing to do with F#, but uninstalling mono on Mac is pretty simple.
Just run the uninstall script comes with mono distribution package.
After mounting .dmg file, run the following.
% sudo sh /Volumes/MonoFramework-2.8.1/MonoFramework-2.8.1_3.macos10.novell.x86.pkg/Contents/Resources/

Thanks for the feedback, I'll see if we can add some uninstaller.
Which way of installing F# did you use? The Mac installer or the portable TGZ archive?

Anyway, if you used Mac installer, then you need to run (as a root) "gacutil -u <assembly>" for "FSharp.Core", "FSharp.Compiler" and "FSharp.Server.Shared" in place of "<assembly>" and then "rm -r /usr/lib/fsharp" (to remove F# binaries) and "rm /usr/bin/fsharp*" to remove commands.
