Function std::fs::remove_dir

pub fn remove_dir<P: AsRef<Path>>(path: P) -> Result<()>

Removes an existing, empty directory.

Platform-specific behavior

This function currently corresponds to the rmdir function on Unix and the RemoveDirectory function on Windows. Note that, this may change in the future.

Errors

This function will return an error in the following situations, but is not limited to just these cases:

  • The user lacks permissions to remove the directory at the provided path.
  • The directory isn't empty.

Examples

use std::fs;

fn main() -> std::io::Result<()> {
    fs::remove_dir("/some/dir")?;
    Ok(())
}
