Re: About dired and directories




How you delete a directory is determined by the status of the
directory. If it is empty, then you can just delete it like a normal
file. However, if it contains files or other directories, you either
need to delete those files and sub-directories first or you can use
the ! to execute a command on the directory and enter rm -rf which
will do a recursive forced removal.
