rmdir - remove empty directories


       rmdir [OPTION]... DIRECTORY...


       Remove the DIRECTORY(ies), if they are empty.

              is non-empty

       -p, --parents

       -v, --verbose
              output a diagnostic for every directory processed

       --help display this help and exit

              output version information and exit
