    Code:
    int main(int argc, char ** argv) {
     int error, status = 0;
     const char * errname = 0;
     while(*(++argv)) {
      printf("Deleting '%s'...", *argv); 
      error = remove(*argv);
      if(error) {
       status = error;
       errname = "Failed";
       } else {
       errname = "Success";
       }
      printf("%s (%d).\n", errname, error);
      }
     return status;
    }
    Code:
    #include <cmath>
    #include <complex>
    bool euler_flip(bool value)
    {
        return std::pow
        (
            std::complex<float>(std::exp(1.0)), 
            std::complex<float>(0, 1) 
            * std::complex<float>(std::atan(1.0)
            *(1 << (value + 2)))
        ).real() < 0;
    }

    >>error = remove(*argv);
    >>status = error;
    >>return status;
    A minor point, but be warned that you could be returning undefined values, as remove() will return non-zero on error.
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]
