rmdir

Remove empty folder from target computer

Description

example

rmdir(filesys_object,folder_name) removes an empty folder from the target computer file system. If the folder contains a file or folder, the function prints an error message.

You cannot recover this folder once you remove it.

Note: The SimulinkRealTime.fileSystem object will be removed in a future release. See the release note for file system commands to use instead. These commands use the SimulinkRealTime.openFTP function and the functions for the MATLAB ftp object.
