RMVDIR DIR('/a')  RMVLNK(*YES)

However I've yet to find a file system in which the RMVLNK(*YES) doesn't
generate CPFA0AC-"Request cannot be completed.  Directory contains
objects."  Which basically makes this a worthless keyword.

But in all cases the directory must be empty, no? The only way I know of to
recursively delete a directory is 'rm -r' from qshell.

One way to learn, do a WRKLNK.  Try some of the options but instead of
using
Enter, use F4.  Then the command will pop up.  For example 2=Edit  is EDTF
3=Copy is CPY 4=Remove is RMVLNK or RMVDIR depending on if it's a DIR or
not. ...
