Re: How to delete a file??
>I don't know how to delete a file in C without to use the fonction exec()
unlink - remove directory entry
int unlink(const char *path);
The unlink() function removes a link to a file. If path
names a symbolic link, unlink() removes the symbolic link
named by path and does not affect any file or directory
named by the contents of the symbolic link. Otherwise,
unlink() removes the link named by the pathname pointed to
by path and decrements the link count of the file referenced
by the link.
When the file's link count becomes 0 and no process has the
file open, the space occupied by the file will be freed and
the file will no longer be accessible. If one or more
processes have the file open when the last link is removed,
the link will be removed before unlink() returns, but the
removal of the file contents will be postponed until all
references to the file are closed.
