Well I be... :-)
This is clearly a place where MS and *nix don't play along too well. MS
documentation states remove() is only used for files while *nix docs state
it's to remove both files and dirs. A obviously trust the *nix docs more,
but do we have anyone anyone here that has access to the (pre 99) ANSI C
standard? Could it be that the standard only says "filesystem entry" or
something like that?
