The Unclear Impact

okay, WHY is rmdir

@TransGal4872@mk.absturztau.be I guess it was here before rm could remove dir? you would first remove the directory content then the directory itself?

@striker@mk.striker.net.eu.org okay, so rmdir has been redundant since 1973. nice.

@striker @TransGal4872

[…] you would set the front panel switches to a number and run dsw, which would then read that number of entries from the current directory, print on the terminal the name of the last one it had read, and crash itself, leaving a core dump. You could then, if you wanted, remove the file it had named by reexecuting the core file.

This is legitimately terrifying. blobfoxsipterrified
