This manual page documents the GNU version of rm. rm removes each
specified file. By default, it does not remove directories.
If a file is unwritable, the standard input is a tty, and the -f or

That doesnt help I just want to delete the directory please.
Thanks but I have a weird way of learning things, I start off slow but in the end I become a pro. I do this by asking for the commands I need, then once I memorized all of the most common commands then I take the time to take it to the next level and read up on everything. Right now I am pretty busy and I tried searching but I must not use google properly. Could you please tell me the command to delete a directory please.
I think the primary problem here is that you are looking for ssh commands on google. You should look for bash/sh/tcsh or linux/unix commands.
ssh is only the command that allows you to get a shell on a remote machine securely. ssh has no command set other than its very long list of command line options. The command set is that of the machine that you have connected too.
Consider investing in a book like Unix in a nutshell or Linux in a nutshell by orielly. These contain all of the common shell commands and examples of how to use them. You should also be able to find a shell tutorial online.
