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.
