    File deletion

    I have more troubles with my coursework, I can create a user file, encrypt it, and save it in binary mode, I can open it, decrypt it, and read it. But I want to have an admin style area, where user files can be deleted when users leave the club, and the files deleted to save space. Any ideas?

    Have tried using remove, it just confuses me though. It opens the file to check it's there, closes it, runs the remove function and doesn't have any errors, but the file is still there!

    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]

    Did you check remove's return value?
