condor_rmdir

Windows-only no-fail deletion of directories

Synopsis

condor_rmdir [/HELP | /? ]

condor_rmdir @filename

condor_rmdir [/VERBOSE ] [/DIAGNOSTIC ] [/PATH:<path> ] [/S ] [/C ] [/Q ] [/NODEL ] directory

Description

condor_rmdir can delete a specified directory, and will not fail if the directory contains files that have ACLs that deny the SYSTEM process delete access, unlike the built-in Windows rmdir command.

The directory to be removed together with other command line arguments may be specified within a file named filename, prefixing this argument with an @ character.

The condor_rmdir.exe executable is is intended to be used by HTCondor with the /S /C options, which cause it to recurse into subdirectories and continue on errors.
