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 $_.

[erix]: until good old Putin lobs a bomb on Berlin :)
[Your Mother]: “I’m afraid of Americans…”
[Your Mother]: “No one needs anyone / They don’t even just pretend…”
[erix]: they've stuck nuclear missiles in Kaliningrad - they can just reach Berlin :)
[LanX]: naaah! Putin wouldn't nuke all the Russians in Berlin
[Your Mother]: Putin is a bad guy but he’s not that kind of bad guy. (Who would launch.)
[erix]: fortunately, Putin seems to be ill -- or at least, they're building a hospital for him and his cronies in Moscow
[erix]: nobody knows what kind it takes :)
[erix]: I say his seems a face that launches a thousand missiles :)
[Your Mother]: I say I do. :P
