How to uninstall XCODE 5

Hi,
I tried this: sudo /Developer/Library/uninstall-devtools –mode=all

but returns:

sudo: /Developer/Library/uninstall-devtools: command not found

I think the command doesn't work anymore. I would like to safely remove XCODE5 and all of its files. What's the best way to do that? Thank you!

Dragging it to the trash should work for Xcode 4.3 and higher. There may be a few lingering files though. AppCleaner works pretty well for this activity too and may do a better job of removing additional files that a simple trashing does not.
