    Dear Members

    I want to delete a directory /dir1 which contains other directories e.g. /subdir i.e. /dir/subdir and there are files in /subdir. How can I issue a 'rm' command from /dir to delete /subdir including its contents??

    Thanks

    Type rm -rf (directoryname), it will delete the directory including subdirectories.

    Cheers!
