NAME
     rmdir  -  remove directory

SYNOPSIS
     rmdir dir ...

DESCRIPTION
     Rmdir  removes (deletes) directories.  The directory must be
     empty (except for the standard entries `.' and  `..',  which
     rmdir  itself removes).  Write permission is required in the
     directory in which the directory to be removed appears.

BUGS
     Needs a -r flag.
     Actually, write permission in the directory's parent is  not
     required.
     Mildly  unpleasant  consequences  can follow removal of your
     own or someone else's current directory.
