Subject Re: AW: Classes directory is having old class file
Date Fri, 21 Sep 2007 10:29:51 GMT
Very thanks Steve. I don't know the exact meaning of having quiet. I 
will try without having quiet during the delete operation. If there is 
any command so that it will forcibly delete the directory(classes).

Thanks & Regards
