Syntax:

call "CBL_DELETE_FILE" using     filename
                       returning status-code

Parameters:

filename pic x(n).
status-code See Library Routines - Key

On Entry:

filename The file to delete. The name can contain a pathname, and is terminated by a space. If no path is given, the current directory is assumed.

This routine does not work with filenames containing wildcard characters.

On Exit:

None.

Comments:

You cannot use wildcard characters in filenames.

CBL_DELETE_FILE is not stripe-aware. If you use this routine on a file for which striping is enabled, the details returned refer to the first stripe only. Therefore, use this routine on an individual stripe only and refer to the stripe by the stripe name. .

You can check the success of the call by examining RETURN-CODE. See the topic Interpreting the Return Code as a File Status Code for more details.
