rm -rf Build Status crates.io

Force-remove a file/directory and all descendants.

In contrast to std::fs::remove_dir_all, it will remove empty directories that lack read access on Linux, and will remove "read-only" files and directories on Windows.

Usage

rm_rf::remove("target")?; // remove, fail if target doesn't exists
rm_rf::ensure_removed("target")?; // remove, but ignore if target doesn't exist

Note: to avoid stack overflow for deeply nested directories, this library uses stacker.
