Subject RE: Deleting only the contents of a directory
Date Mon, 21 Jun 2004 16:16:36 GMT
Hi Luis and Neta,

I checked your examples, which are virtually same and
the result is that they delete all the files in the
all the subdirectories, and leave the subdirectories.
My aim is to remove all the files and all
subdirectories without the root directory.

Thank you very much for your help

Ivan
