I Assume you did so by using `rm folder` (or a system GUI equivilent) instead of a CVS command, seeing as there is NO cvs command to remove a directory.

what CVS command do I need to commit this change?
check it out again (because you blew away the CVS control directory before committing),
`cvs remove -f file`   on all appropriate files again,
`cvs commit -m"Those files got destroyed"`
`echo "update -Pd" >> ~/.cvsrc`
`echo "checkout -P" >> ~/.cvsrc`
cd ..
cvs update

Note, it looks like you are on windows and the above commands are for Unix, so you will need to do an appropriate translation for the creation/modification of your ~/.cvsrc file:

  "ci" does not work. I use Ant for this, so here is my example:
<cvs command="ci -R -m ${DEFAULT_CVS_COMMENT} numbers"
I see it in Eclipse that the folder is not deleted in CVS afterwards.

If you are using CVSNT on the server too, you may want to put the .cvsrc mods above into $CVSROOT/CVSROOT/cvsrc too.

Assume that I don't know the filenames which have been in that deleted folder. I need a generic way to simply commit whatever has been changed in a directory, no matter what kind of change it is.

Not if you already deleted the control folder (CVS) from your sandbox that held the CVS data about that file.
Two exceptions rtag & rdiff.

For automation in the 21th century IT world this is very important.

You expect that if you destroy random parts of your tools, then they should continue to function at full capability? Funny, in the military we expect that we _may_ only retain a DEGRADED capability when only _non-critical_ portions of the system are destroyed.

I hope this helped your understanding.
