Deleting all files of a directory

We have seen how a file can be deleted by using unlink function in PHP. The same function can be used along with directory handler to list and delete all the files present inside. We have discussed how to display all the files present inside a directory. Now let us try to develop a function and to this function we will post directory name as parameter and the function will use unlink command to remove files by looping through all the files of the directory.
