comp.lang.c FAQ list · Question 19.16

Q: How can I delete a file?

A: The Standard C Library function is remove. (This is therefore one of the few questions in this section for which the answer is not ``It's system-dependent.'') On older, pre-ANSI Unix systems, remove may not exist, in which case you can try unlink. [footnote]
