unlink

See the current Perl documentation for unlink.

Here is our local, out-dated (pre-5.6) version:


unlink - remove one link to a file



unlink LIST

unlink



Deletes a list of files. Returns the number of files successfully deleted.

    $cnt = unlink 'a', 'b', 'c';
    unlink @goners;
    unlink <*.bak>;

Note: unlink() will not delete directories unless you are superuser and the -U flag is supplied to Perl. Even if these conditions are met, be warned that unlinking a directory can inflict damage on your filesystem. Use rmdir() instead.

If LIST is omitted, uses $_.
