Recursive Delete DIR and Sub Dir with CONTENTS
 
I want to know a simple command to delete folders and subfolders with contents?

I am trying to do this: (I don't want to descend into every single directory.)

[root@localhost local]# rm -r gcc-3.4.4
rm: descend into directory `gcc-3.4.4'?

Do you mean that you don't want prompts?
If so, you could use force.
For example: rm -rf /some/folder
