Use the delete folder command to clean up by removing a folder you created.

Parameters:

The pathName specifies the name and location of the folder. If you specify a name but not a location, Revolution assumes the folder is in the defaultFolder.

Comments:

If a folder contains any files or folders, it cannot be deleted with the delete folder command until the items inside it are deleted or moved. To delete a folder that is not empty, use the revDeleteFolder command.

This command can also be used to remove folders your stack did not create. Of course, a stack should not remove folders it didn't create without obtaining explicit confirmation from the user.

Caution! This command cannot be undone, so be very certain before you use it. The delete foldercommand removes the folder completely from the user's system. It does not place the folder in the Trash or Recycle Bin.
