Description

ttrmdir(1)                     ToolTalk Commands                    ttrmdir(1)



NAME
       ttrmdir - remove empty directories and inform the ToolTalk service

SYNOPSIS
       ttrmdir [-L] directory ...

       ttrmdir -h | -v

DESCRIPTION
       The ttrmdir utility invokes rmdir(1) to remove empty directories and
       informs ToolTalk about its actions so that the ToolTalk objects associ-
       ated with the deleted directories can also be deleted.

       The ttrmdir utility removes the ToolTalk objects before it removes the
       directories and does not check whether a directory is empty or whether
       the directory-removing operation will succeed before performing the
       object-removing operation.

OPTIONS
       The following options are available:

          -h    Write a help message for invoking ttrmdir and then exit.

          -L    Remove the ToolTalk objects of the directories, but do not
                invoke rmdir(1) to remove the actual directories.

          -v    Write the version number of ttrmdir and then exit.

       The -p option to cp(1) is not supported.

OPERANDS
       The following operand is supported:

          directory
                A pathname of an empty directory to be removed.

STDIN
       Not used.

INPUT FILES
       The input files specified as operands can be of any file type.

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES
       The following environment variables affect the execution of ttrmdir:

          LANG           Provide a default value for the internationalization
                         variables that are unset or null.  If LANG is unset
                         or null, the corresponding value from the implementa-
                         tion-specific default locale will be used.  If any of
                         the internationalization variables contains an
                         invalid setting, the utility behaves as if none of
                         the variables had been defined.

          LC_ALL         If set to a non-empty string value, override the val-
                         ues of all the other internationalization variables.

          LC_MESSAGES    Determine the locale that is used to affect the for-
                         mat and contents of diagnostic messages written to
                         standard error and informative messages written to
                         standard output.

          NLSPATH        Determine the location of message catalogues for the
                         processing of LC_MESSAGES.

RESOURCES
       None.

ASYNCHRONOUS EVENTS
       The ttrmdir utility takes the standard action for all signals.

STDOUT
       When the -h option is used, ttrmdir writes to standard output a help
       message in an unspecified format.

       When the -v option is used, ttrmdir writes to standard output a version
       number in an unspecified format.

STDERR
       Used only for diagnostic messages.

OUTPUT FILES
       None.

EXTENDED DESCRIPTION
       None.

EXIT STATUS
       The following exit values are returned:

           0  All directories and ToolTalk objects were removed successfully.

          >0  An error occurred or the invoked rmdir(1) command exited with a
              non-zero value.

CONSEQUENCES OF ERRORS
       Default.

FILES
       /mountpoint/TT_DB   The directory used as a database for the ToolTalk
                           objects of files in the file system mounted at
                           /mountpoint.

APPLICATION USAGE
       The definition of an empty directory is one that contains, at most,
       directory entries for dot and dot-dot.

EXAMPLES
       None.
