    I have installed an Eclipse based tool, that has created multiple folders with in a single folder,
    Eg:
    C:\projects\cas\build\d1\d1\d1\d1\d1\d1\d1\d1\d1\d1\d1\d1\d1\d1\d1\d1\d1\d1\d1\d1\d1\d1\d1\d1\d1\d1\d1\d1\d1\d1\d1\d1....
    and so on.

    I wanted to delete the files. But i could not.
    I tried using the following in cygwin.
    $rm -r d1/ from the build directory.

    rm: cannot remove `d1/d1/d3/d2/d2/d/d1/d/d/d/d/d/d/d/d/d/d/d/d/d/d/d/d/d/d/d/d/d
    1/d/d/d/d/d/d/d/d/d/d/d/d/d/d/d/d/dtc1798_system/d/d/dtc1798_system/dtc1798_syst
    em/dtc1798_system/dtc1798_system/dtc1798_system/dtc1798_system/dtc1798_system/dt
    c1798_system': File name too long


    How can this be deleted?
