Removing directories created with the ln -s command

To remove a directory that is a symbolic link that points to another directory use the command:

   rm directory_name

Notice that the directory does not need to be empty and you do not have to use the rmdir command. You are not really removing a directory, just a named symbolic link that points to the "real" directory.
