Dir.DeletePart of Dir module

Syntax   Dir.Delete (directoryPathName : string)

Description   Dir.Delete is used to delete the directory specified by the parameter directoryPathName. This is the equivalent of doing a rmdir in DOS or UNIX. On the Macintosh, it removes a folder.

Dir.Delete will fail if it attempts delete a directory that has files in it.

Details   If the Dir.Delete call fails, then Error.Last will return a non-zero value indicating the reason for the failure. Error.LastMsg will return a string which contains the textual version of the error.

Example   This program deletes the directory called information.

        Dir.Delete ("information")
        if Error.Last = eNoError then
            put "Directory delete"
            put "Did not delete the directory."
            put "Error: ", Error.LastMsg
        end if
Example   An example demonstrating the use of several of the Dir subprograms is available. In this example, a directory is created, a file is written to the directory, an attempt is made to delete the directory, the file is deleted, and then the directory is deleted.

This example demonstrates the use of Dir.Change, Dir.Current, Dir.Create, and Dir.Delete.

Status   Exported qualified.

This means that you can only call the function by calling Dir.Delete, not by calling Delete.
