Use an 'rmdir' function that's smart about .DS_Store files
Authored by: luomat on Dec 22, '09 10:25:20AM

Go ahead and convert this to perl and tell me what you plan to do with the spare cycles that you save.

This is a tiny little script you're going to run, what, once per day? Maybe, MAYBE, on a really heavy day, you'd run it 20 times.

Actually, let me do it for you:

# date;time rmdir.sh test;date
Tue Dec 22 13:23:41 EST 2009
rmdir: removed test
rmdir.sh test 0.00s user 0.02s system 11% cpu 0.217 total
