At a click of a button, I want to give the user the option of deleting a directory on a web server.  The path to this directory is always the same (home/username/http-docs/somedirectory) where a directory called "somedirectory" will be deleted.  Unfortunately a directory cannot be deleted when it has other directories & files in it and these will differ.  I already have the code to log in/out of the server. All I need is  some code to do EITHER of the following:

1. Code to delete this directory even if it is not empty.

OR...

2. List all the directories and files in a directory and ALSO their sub-directories. Everything has to be listed so I can set up a delete routine. I already have the path to the top directory.

I am using a FTP component called ipwFTP1 which can use commands listed at:

I am using Delphi 6.  This is URGENT so I am giving the maximum 500 points for this. Many thanks for your help.
