Remove a directory.


Source position: bunxh.inc line 78

function FpRmdir(

  path: PChar


function FpRmdir(

  const path: RawByteString



FpRmdir removes the directory Path from the system. The directory must be empty for this call to succeed, and the user must have the necessary permissions in the parent directory. Only the last component of the directory is removed, i.e. higher-lying directories are not removed.

On success, zero is returned. A nonzero return value indicates failure.

Note: There exist a portable alterative to fpRmDir: system.rmdir. Please use fpRmDir only if you are writing Unix specific code. System.rmdir will work on all operating systems.
