Rm Is Funny :-)

Recommended Posts

LOL, I was trying out to link a directory so I did


[email protected]??? ln -s convert_tries/ link2convert


Seen that it works then I wanted to remove the link and what I did is:


[email protected]??? ~> rm -r link2convert/

rm: cannot remove directory `link2convert/': Not a directory

[email protected]??? ~> rm link2convert/

rm: cannot remove `link2convert/': Is a directory



Actually I thought it is only fun, but now I wonder how do I delete the link only, with rm link2convert/* ? Or does that actually delete the conent of convert_tries/ ?
