Shouldn't be hard to do. Deldir is fairly simple, just set a flag not to prompt. I like Gene's "-fq" option... :-p

If I recall, the options were "-fq" to delete without asking Y/N questions.And it was a good way for the OS to say FQ to your data.		-- A-- Coco mailing listCoco at maltedmedia.comhttps://pairlist5.pair.net/mailman/listinfo/coco
