rmdir -- remove directories
rmdir [-p] directory ...
The rmdir utility removes the directory entry specified by each directory argument, provided it is empty. Arguments are processed in the order given. In order to remove both a parent directory and a subdirectory of that parent, the subdirectory must be specified first so the parent directory is empty when rmdir tries to remove it. The following option is available: -p Each directory argument is treated as a pathname of which all components will be removed, if they are empty, starting with the last most component. (See rm(1) for fully non-discriminant recursive removal.)
The rmdir utility exits with one of the following values: 0 Each directory entry specified by a dir operand referred to an empty directory and was removed successfully. >0 An error occurred.
The rmdir utility is expected to be IEEE Std 1003.2 (``POSIX.2'') compat- ible. NetBSD 4.0 May 31, 1993 NetBSD 4.0
