removes a directory

Calling Sequence

rmdir(dirname)
rmdir(dirname,'s')
[status, message] = rmdir(dirname,'s')

Arguments

dirname

a character string.

's'

a mark to remove directory dirname with subdirectories.

status

a boolean.

message

a character string: a message about an error.

Description

rmdir(dirname) removes the directory dirname from the current directory. If the directory is not empty, you must use the s argument. If dirname is not in the current directory, specify the relative path to the current directory or the full path for dirname.

rmdir(dirname,'s') removes the directory dirname and its contents from the current directory.

[status, message] = rmdir(dirname,'s') removes the directory dirname and its contents from the current directory, returning the status, and a message. Here, status is 1 for success and is 0 for error.

Whatever the operating system, if the removing of directory succeeds, the status is 1 and the message message is empty.

Examples

mkdir(SCI,'Directory')
rmdir(SCI+'/Directory')
