Removes a selected or specified namespace.

All modules under the same parent can be considered in the namespace of that parent, using slashes ( / ) to separate each module's parent's name. removeNamespace operates on all selected modules unless you use the -onMod flag to specify the module on which to operate by name.

Note that you may specify the path in commands that require a module name, but you may not specify the path as a module name in the Name attribute.

You need to specify only what is required to uniquely identify the name.

Note also that you can remove a single namespace (for example, removeNamespace "Joe"; ) from anywhere in a name containing multiple namespaces (for example, "Bob:Joe:LUPA") , to result in "Bob:LUPA".
