I believe that is OK by ANSI spec.

There is nothing in ANSI spec for deleting directories -- you
can create them, but you can't remove them using only ANSI spec.

| change directory
| make directory (done via C)
| get current directory name
| get absolute name of a directory
| delete file or directory
| rename file or directory
| find all files matching pattern "*.NRLIB/index.KAF"
| recursively copy directory with content (currently invokes the 'cp' program)
| copy file (likewise)
