This command deletes all requested topics, printing the success or fail status per topic.
-r flag opts into parsing the input topics as regular expressions
and deleting any non-internal topic that matches any of expressions. The input
expressions are wrapped with
$ so that the expression must match the
whole topic name (which also prevents accidental delete-everything mistakes).
The topic list command accepts the same input regex format as this delete
command. If you want to check what your regular expressions will delete before
actually deleting them, you can check the output of
rpk topic list -r.

rpk topic delete foo bar
Deletes any topic starting with
f and any topics ending in
rpk topic delete -r '^f.*' '.*r$'

rpk topic delete -r '.*'
Deletes any one-character topics:
rpk topic delete -r .
