REMOVE(3) BSD Programmer's Manual REMOVE(3)
remove - remove a file or directory
#include <stdio.h> int remove(const char *path);
The remove() function removes the file or directory specified by path. If path specifies a directory, remove(path) is the equivalent of rmdir(path). Otherwise, it is the equivalent of unlink(path).
Upon successful completion, remove() returns 0. Otherwise, -1 is returned and the global variable errno is set to indicate the error.
The remove() function may fail and set errno for any of the errors speci- fied for the routines rmdir(2) or unlink(2).
The remove() function conforms to ANSI X3.159-1989 ("ANSI C") and X/Open Portability Guide Issue 4.2 ("XPG4.2"). MirOS BSD #10-current October 7, 1997 1
