DELTREE file/directory_name

[<<<] [>>>]

Delete a file or a directory. You can use this command to delete a file the same way as you do use the command DELETE. The difference between the two commands DLETE and DELTREE comes into place when the program deletes directories.

This command, DELTREE forcefully tries to delete a directory even if the directory is not empty. If the directory is not empty then the command tries to delete the files in the directory and the subdirectories recursively.

If the file or the directory cannot be deleted then the command raises error. However even in this case some of the files and subdirectories may already been deleted.
