KILL

Deletes a file from disk.

Syntax

KILL filename

Comments

filename is a string expression specifying the file to delete. The string can contain the MS-DOS wildcard characters ? and *.

Note

You must specify the filename’s extension when using the KILL command. Remember that files saved in BASIC are given the default extension .BAS.

If a KILL command is given for a file that is currently open, a File already open error occurs.

Examples

KILL "TEST.DAT"
KILL "*.OLD"
