Bertrand Dechoux created HADOOP-8791:
----------------------------------------

Summary: rm "Only deletes non empty directory and files."
Key: HADOOP-8791
URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-8791
Project: Hadoop Common
Issue Type: Bug
Components: documentation
Affects Versions: 1.0.3
Reporter: Bertrand Dechoux


The documentation (1.0.3) is describing the opposite of what rm does.
It should be "Only delete files and empty directories."

With regards to file, the size of the file should not matter, should it?

OR I am totally misunderstanding the semantic of this command and I am not the only one.
