    u have to use this option in order to delete the home direcotry for the use
    becose by defult userdel con't delete the home directory it just remove the user from
    and the group name from
    and the user will no longer able to login

    to remove the home direcoty you have to use this option

    userdel - r
    r stand for remove

    it's will be del the user with the home direcotry
