    file deletion function

    Hi, i'm pretty sure this is easy? I'm really new to C++ and was wondering if anyone could show me a code that will permanantly delete a file.

    If you could supply a full code, I can fiddle around with it and see how it works to help me get a better understanding.

    Thanks heaps!!

    look at the remove() or unlink functions declared in <io.h> and <stdio.h>, respectively:

    remove("C:\\mydir\\sales.doc")
