Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-8791) rm "Only deletes non empty directory and files."
Date Fri, 14 Sep 2012 20:29:09 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-8791?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13456116#comment-13456116

Andy Isaacson commented on HADOOP-8791:
---------------------------------------

bq. we could add a new rmdir in FsShell

There's already {{hdfs dfs -rmdir}} in trunk.  It behaves like Unix rmdir: it only deletes
empty directories, failing with "Directory is not empty" if there are files or subdirectories.
                
> rm "Only deletes non empty directory and files."

> The documentation (1.0.3) is describing the opposite of what rm does.
> It should be  "Only delete files and empty directories."
> With regards to file, the size of the file should not matter, should it?
> OR I am totally misunderstanding the semantic of this command and I am not the only one.
