Kill v1.20 Documentation
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Purpose
~~~~~~~
KILL is a utility program that will, unlike RD or DEL,
remove all the files from a directory (or a group of directories),
as well as the directory itself. It will also delete all the
subdirectories, and their files, and subdirectories from there,
ad infinitum.

KILL allows you to stack directories for deletion, thereby
allowing multiple directory kills at one command. You are always
kept informed of the progress of the KILL function.

KILL also knows when a file is Read Only, System or Hidden
and will prompt you to continue (or skip the file), unless unsafe
mode is activated.
If you have Paranoid mode activated, KILL will prompt for all files
that it discovers.

Examples of using KILL:

C:\UTIL BAT

DOS

WP RANDOM

ASSIGN

Typing
"KILL WP" from the UTIL directory will delete the directories
WP, RANDOM, ASSIGN as well as all the files contained within!

"KILL C:\UTIL\BAT" from anywhere will erase the files in BAT
and the directory itself.

"KILL C:\UTIL" from the root or another drive will delete the entire
tree listed above.

"KILL \" from anywhere on C: will erase the entire contents of the
drive.

"KILL .." from either the RANDOM or ASSIGN directories will
erase RANDOM, ASSIGN and WP as well as all their files.

"KILL ." from any directory will erase that directory, along
with it's files and subdirectories.

"KILL ..\DOS" from the BAT or WP directories will erase the DOS
subdirectory and all files within it.

"KILL RANDOM ASSIGN" from the WP directory will erase the
the RANDOM and ASSIGN directories as well as the files within.

"KILL C:\WP\ BAT DOS" from the UTIL directory will erase the WP,
RANDOM and ASSIGN directories, then the BAT and the DOS directories,
along with the contents in them.

Usage
~~~~~
KILL [ ...] [/unsafe] [/any] [/bios] [/skip]

is the directory which you want to delete. You may
stack as many directories you wish.

[/unsafe] tells KILL not to prompt for confirmation at
startup or when a special file is encountered.

[/any] tells KILL to prompt at EVERY file. This takes
precendence over /unsafe.

[/bios] write through the BIOS and not through video memory.
Use this under multitaskers or if you get snow.

[/skip] leave all special files intact, or, if /any is specified,
then leave ALL files intact, and remove only empty
directories.

You may stack as many directories as you want, and the order of the
parameters does not matter.

You may press the ESC key to abort the program with confirmation
or Ctrl-Break to abort the program, at any time. Pressing any
other key will result in the program pausing until another key
(which may include ESC or CTRL-BRK to abort) is pressed.
