Deleting directories
 
This should be easy! I've tried the rm command with the -d option and I get "cannot remove directory: matchball is a directory" Get away!

I've also tried rmdir with various switches.

Can anyone help? The directory I'm trying to remove is "matchball"

Are there files in the directory?

If there are just rm -rf matchball

or just delete everything in the directory, and then rmdir matchball
