C file delete example

     

This section illustrates you to delete a file in C. You can see in the given example that we want to remove the file HELLO.txt. For this, we have used the library function remove() which deletes the file HELLO.txt. In case if the file will not be deleted, the function perror() prints the error message on the console.

Here i am using TurboC++ IDE and my source file is in the C:\TC\BIN directory and the file to be deleted Hello.txt  should be first placed inside the same bin directory.

Here is the code:

FILEDELE.C

#include <stdio.h>
#include <conio.h>
void main() {
  if (remove("HELLO.txt"== -1)
  perror("Error in deleting a file");
  getch();
}

When you run the above example, the file HELLO.txt gets removed.
