comp.lang.c FAQ list · Question 19.21

Q: How do I create a directory?
How do I remove a directory (and its contents)?

A: If your operating system supports these services, they are likely to be provided in C via functions named mkdir and rmdir. Removing a directory's contents as well will require listing them (see question 19.20) and calling remove (see also question 19.16). If you don't have these C functions available, try system (see question 19.27) along with your operating system's delete command(s).
