I am nervous about doing this since it is Linux versus other OS. What is the correct command to use to remove a directory and all of the files that fall under that directory without receiving questions back about whether or not want to remove various files within the that directory? In other words, using the example below, I want to remove the "directory_to_be_removed" including any files that are in it without having to respond yes repeatedly? The directory being removed is actually downloaded Oracle software from CD (but not the location where the install of the software itself is actually located at).
