Hi Kirill,

thanks a lot for fixing this! This was an annoyance on Windows.

Just small remarks:
- RemoveDirectory will only work on empty directories. Recursively deleting
non-empty directories seems to be more difficult. So could you please add a
comment that this function only deletes empty directories and is not
intended to work recursively? Or rename the function to
- You do not have to output errno if RemoveDirectory failed, that number
will be unrelated to the error. GetLastError should be enough.

I also wonder why all those utilitiy functions are imeplemented in a header
file? I think it would be better for a C file (can change implementation
without triggering rebuild; also binary may be smaller, at least on

Kind regards, Thomas
