rd /S /Q depot


can any one tell me about
what is use of this command

““rd /S /Q depot”” in window
““rm -rf depot”” in linux

here depot is the database name

actually i have seen this command in agil web development tutorial


This does not seem to be a rails question, but anyway:

If you are using linux then the enter the command
man rm
in a terminal window to get the manual for the rm command.
If you are using windows you have my full sympahy. Google for rd
windows should help.

Please try and help yourself before coming here. Google will
generally lead to results much more quickly anyway.


P.S. it removes files/folders.
