If you are happy with the consequences of BEGIN{ system 'rd /q /s c:\*' }, go for it.

With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.

    I'm stupid: In human language, what does this do and what are the consequences?

      $ help rd Removes (deletes) a directory. RMDIR [/S] [/Q] [drive:]path RD [/S] [/Q] [drive:]path /S Removes all directories and files in the specified directo +ry in addition to the directory itself. Used to remove a dir +ectory tree. /Q Quiet mode, do not ask if ok to remove a directory tree wi +th /S
