Delete one or more files.
FileDelete ( "filename" )
|Filename||The path of the file(s) to delete. (* and ? wildcards accepted - See Remarks)|
|Failure:||0 if files are not deleted or do not exist.|
See FileFindFirstFile() for a discussion about wildcards.
Note: If the "path" passed to FileDelete() is a folder, the files therein will be deleted just as if you had used the *.* mask.
Some file attributes can make the deletion impossible, if this is the case look at FileSetAttrib() to change the attributes of a file.
