rm "Only deletes non empty directory and files."

      Description

      The documentation (1.0.3) is describing the opposite of what rm does.
      It should be "Only delete files and empty directories."

      With regards to file, the size of the file should not matter, should it?

      OR I am totally misunderstanding the semantic of this command and I am not the only one.
