MS-DOS equivalent: RMDIR D) (2.0+)
[d:]path Specifies the drive and path of the directory
to be removed.
RD is used to remove a subdirectory that is no longer
deletes the subdirectory LETTERS.
Invalid path, not directory,
or directory not empty
Either one of the names you specified was not a directory or was
the current directory (which you cannot remove), or the directory
you are trying to remove still contains files (other than the .
and .. files) and/or subdirectories. Either check the directory
name, change to a different directory, or delete the contents of
the directory and then reissue the RMDIR command.
Use the MKDIR command to recreate a subdirectory that you
removed in error.
Only empty subdirectories may be removed. A subdirectory is
empty when . and .. are the only entries in it. Remove all files
from a subdirectory by using the DEL or ERASE command first. Only
the last subdirectory in the path you specify will be removed.
You cannot remove the subdirectory you are currently in; you must
change to another directory first. In addition, you cannot delete
the root directory.
