Deleting the contents of a directory in the ifs



fixed

Hi everyone
I am making a change to our system (release V5r4) where files are being loaded to a directory in the ifs, and so far (with the tremendous help of this list) I am accomplishing what I set out to do.
However, at the start of this process I need to clear out the directory of EVERYTHING.
Does anyone know how to do this?
I am assuming the Qshell is the best way to go (which may or may not be true), but it's been quite a few years since I last did ANY UNIX so the more that I delve into this, the more that I realize just how much I have forgotten (or didn't know)
