comment Is `rm -rf` not atomic?
@Aitch: the code that works with it handles all the possible cases. So even if directory or its contents completely or partially disappears at any moment - then it just regenerates it back.

comment Is `rm -rf` not atomic?
@Gilles: it depends: "A piece of code is thread-safe if it only manipulates shared data structures in a manner that guarantees safe execution by multiple threads at the same time". So if we assume "thread" as a rm invocation, we may speak about thread-safety. But anyway, it doesn't change anything
