???, ZTree as well as XTree does *not* allow any typing errors,
the only difference currently is that XTree quits instantly on mistyping while ZTree only quits after mistyping *and* hitting RETURN!

But to fit Peter's request for a shorter entry there could be an option (1 of 3) for accepting just Y (yes) or OK, for example.

I haven't thought of PRUNE *and* directory name, but rather to require the directory name *instead* of "prune"!
As has been said, this will provide extra security to ensure the user is pruning the directory he really intended, at least as long as PRUNE is irreversible because of not using the Windows recycle bin!
