delete-directory

Arguments: pathname

The new :osi module (see Operating System Interface Functionality in os-interface.htm), released after the release of Allegro CL 6.2, has new operators relating to directory manipulation, including the function rmdir. The new operators do not have separate description pages. They are described in OSI file handling functionality in os-interface.htm.

Deletes the directory named by pathname. The directory must be empty. Use delete-directory-and-files to delete a non-empty directory and all its files and subdirectories.

See also os-interface.htm for general information on the interface between Allegro CL and the operating system. See section Filesystem manipulation functions in that document for information on file and directory information and manipulation functions in Allegro CL.
