It seems that I made a mess as the brew doctor returns a number of errors:

brew doctor

brewed Python. In particular, Pythons installed to /Library can interfere
with other software installs.

Questions

I've two questions:

  1. Is it safe to delete all of those files?
  2. If so, how can I do automatically, just by passing the file list?
