    Um, let's take a wild guess....

    remove()

    Yup. That sounds about right.

    If you are on Unix use

    Code:
    int unlink(const char *path);

    According to http://linux.about.com/od/commands/l/blcmdl3_remove.htm "remove" calls "unlink". It would be better to use remove for portability.

    but remove is part of the standard library, so it will work for most OS's, and no need to make it specific to a particular OS family.
