Silent Command Line Switch?



Can you add /s and /q as a command line switch. This swtich when given a directory would silently remove empty directories.

For example I could run "Vanity Remover.exe" "C:\Users\Will\Desktop\New Folder" /s which would remove the empty "New Folder" directory from my desktop.

If you add this please display the command line switches available if user runs /? switch. And while your add perhaps add /version with version info. And perhaps an about button the GUI too?

Good ideas. Would /s and /q do the same thing? or?

Yes, same thing. /s is for silent /q is for quiet. Two common command line options. Just makes it easier for users to pick up on. ;)

But what is the difference between silent and quiet? Or would they just do the exact same thing?

Yes, exact same thing.

I just run the tool to check about 70000 folders. I hope it can handle this amount.
So it would be fine to have a line command available to do this in smaller chunks.
