*Deleting* Files Using C++
I have a question about deleting a few. Here is a scenario. The program first asks the user to enter the name of a file to take to.
With ofstream, I found that it will create the file if it cannot find it. I tried implementing "nocreate," but VC++ 6 gave me an error that there is not such function "ios::nocreate."
Anyways, the program would create the file if it cannot find it and the file would be empty or 0 byte size. Afterward, the program calculates specific data (not worth mentioning) and outputs data to the outpuf *if applicatable*. So sometimes the program writes nothing and I would a 0 byte file under the name that the user originally entered.
I would like to know if there is a way to delete a file. So in the case above, there would be a line of code to delete the file if applicable.
