Deleting a file from a directory

By | June 30, 2015

Sage X3 version 7 has a new function to delete a file. With this simple function, we can delete

delFile: This function can be used to delete the file. This function returns a status 0 on success or a negative code.

New Stuff: Steps to add a new text for the Accounting code lines



Parameter Details:

  • PATH: The path where file is located
  • RETURN_STATUS: It status of file.

Points to be noted;

  • On UNIX this function performs an unlink so the file may still exist if referenced by several hard links.
  • This function superseeds System “del”-PATH on Windows and System “rm”-PATH on Unix. It is faster because it does not fork a process.
Return value Status
0 Operation succeeded
-20 File does not exist
-27 Access denied

Kindly refer to the below snippet of code for better understanding the delFile.
