NAME
     rmdir — remove directories

SYNOPSIS
     rmdir directory ...

DESCRIPTION
     The rmdir utility removes the directory entry specified by each directory
     argument, provided it is empty.

     Arguments are processed in the order given.  In order to remove both a
     parent directory and a subdirectory of that parent, the subdirectory must
     be specified first so the parent directory is empty when rmdir tries to
     remove it.

     The rmdir utility exits with one of the following values:

     0	   Each directory entry specified by a dir operand referred to an
	   empty directory and was removed successfully.

     >0	   An error occurred.

SEE ALSO
     rm(1)

STANDARDS
     The rmdir command is expected to be IEEE Std 1003.2 (“POSIX.2”) compati‐
     ble.
