How to make JDS confirm file deletion?

I use the bash shell when logged in over SSH and I always set the following alias just in case I do something stupid:
alias rm="rm -i"
Is there a similar setting for JDS that I can tell it to confirm file delete whenever I try to delete a file (i.e. popup a standard "Are you sure?" dialog box)?

Thanks!

    By default JDS file browser "deletes" files to the trash can - a la windoze Recycle bin 8-( -
    so it doesn't feel the need to double check as you can always reclaim the file from there.

    Emptying the trash includes an "are you sure" which can be configured from the folders settings pane:

    Launch->Preferences->Desktop Preferences->Folders and pick the "Behaviour" tab


    If you mean you want the double check made in a terminal or console displayed within JDS, as opposed to using the file browser, then you need to place a suitable command in the configuration for the shell you're using e.g. .profile or .cshrc etc.
