rmdir directory/* to get rid of all files and dir

rmdir -rf directory
or try
rmdir -rf directory/*
NOTE:i dont use this to often, it can be risky especially at cmd line level

unix and linux commands are all universal. So if u know unix cmd line scripting u can use that for linux cmd scripting too.

By the way out of curiousity what directory are u nuking?

IBM T60p | Intel Core 2 Duo T7200 | 2GB PC2-5300 | ATi M X1700 256MB | 100GB 7200rpm SATA

///m-powered | Intel i7 920 | EVGA x58 | 6GB DD3 1600 | EVGA GTX 285 SSC | 150GB VelociRaptor

Drag racing is for fast cars. Autocrossing is for fast drivers.
