Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-8791) rm "Only deletes non empty directory and files."
Date Wed, 12 Sep 2012 16:42:07 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-8791?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13454109#comment-13454109
] 

Bertrand Dechoux commented on HADOOP-8791:
------------------------------------------

And "non empty directories" is actually "empty directories". This one is not ambiguous but
wrong.

I might send a patch but that won't be soon. I might have a go at it around 22-23th but no
promise.

> 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.
