How about an RPG solution (I've been thinking about this over the weekend)?

This uses five of the UNIX-Type APIs, and it recurses (tree structures play

I am trying to find empty folders on the IFS within a folder structure. My
end goal is to remove/delete the empty folders.

I have found information about the QSH find command to find empty folders.
find /home/kcrawford -type d -empty
gives me this error.
find: 001-2187 The option -empty is not valid.

What do I need to do to get the -empty to work?

This works. find /home/kcrawford -type d

I am open to other solutions.
