How to Remove files and directories via Linux command line


Bismillahirrohmanirrohim.. Hi guys, I’m newbie on linux. I use Ubuntu 15.10 now, and today I wanna share a litle knowledge about how to remove files and directories via Linux command line. (I’m very sorry for my bad english because I’m not british.. Hehe)

To remove files via terminal, you must open terminal first of course  and you can type:

$ rm document1.txt

Lets continue how about remove directories? Just type like this:

$ rmdir directory_name

If directory is not empty, you can type:

$ rm -rf directory_name

Thats it 😊
