 efi_rmdir(1M)                                                 efi_rmdir(1M)
                   Itanium(R)-Based Processor Family Only

 NAME    [Toc]    [Back]
      efi_rmdir - remove an EFI directory

 SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]
      efi_rmdir [-d devicefile] directory

 DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]
      efi_rmdir removes an EFI directory

      The EFI file system is based on the FAT file system and used by the
      Itanium(R)-based system BIOS to locate an HP-UX bootloader.  See

      devicefile should be the device file for the EFI volume.

      If directory is not a directory or the directory is not empty,
      efi_rmdir prints a diagnostic message and returns without removing the
      file; use efi_rm(1M) to remove EFI files.  directory should be
      relative to root of the EFI volume specified by devicefile, not to an
      HP-UX file system.

    Options    [Toc]    [Back]
      efi_rmdir recognizes the following option:

      -d devicefile  devicefile is the device special file of the EFI file
                     system from which the directory is to be removed.
                     Without the -d option, efi_rmdir uses the device file
                     specified in the environment variable EFI_PARTITION if
                     it is defined.  The -d option overrides the
                     EFI_PARTITION environment variable.

 RETURN VALUE    [Toc]    [Back]
      efi_rmdir returns exit code 0 if the directory is removed
      successfully.  Otherwise it prints a diagnostic message and returns

          0      Successful completion.
         >0      Error condition occurred.

 EXAMPLES    [Toc]    [Back]
      Remove efi from /hp-ux/ of device file /dev/rdsk/c1t4d0s1 with EFI
      file system:

           efi_rmdir -d /dev/rdsk/c1t4d0s1 /hp-ux/efi
