</h3>       rmdir - delete a directory

</h3>       #include &lt;unistd.h&gt;

       int rmdir(const char *pathname);

</h3>       rmdir deletes a directory, which must be empty.

</h3>       On  success,  zero is returned.  On error, -1 is returned,
       and errno is set appropriately.

       EFAULT  pathname  points  outside  your accessible address
