Remove directory, this command will only work if the folders are empty.

rmdir [options]... folder(s)...

Ignore each failure that is solely because the
directory is non-empty.
-p, --parents Remove explicit parent directories if being emptied
--verbose Output a diagnostic for every directory processed
--help Display help and exit
--version Output version information and exitExample

Before deleting with a wildcard, it''s wise to echo the files first:

$ echo elvis?costello*.mp3

$ rm elvis?costello*.mp3
