Description

Deletes an existing empty directory.

Call RemoveDir to remove the directory specified by the Dir parameter. The return value is True if a new directory was successfully deleted, False if an error occurred. The directory must be emptied before it can be successfully deleted.

Note: When working with symlinks, there are some special cases to consider because of how symlinks are implemented on different platforms. On Windows, RemoveDir can only delete a symbolic link from a directory, regardless if the directory link is broken or not.
