Lumail - The console email client

Lua primitives: delete_maildir()

NOTE: Lumail-legacy has been superseded by Lumail 2.x, which has a wholly unified Lua API.

This function will delete an existing Maildir folder, if it is empty.

For example:

sent = os.getenv( "HOME" ) .. "/Maildir/.sent" ;

if ( is_maildir( sent ) ) then
   delete_maildir( sent )

Deleting a Maildir involves removing four directories:

If any of those directories cannot be deleted, perhaps because they contain files, then the function will return false.

true will be returned on success.


This function has been available since version 0.24.
