|Dir.Delete||Part 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" else 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.
