NAME
       remove -	remove file

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<stdio.h>

       int remove(const	char *path);

DESCRIPTION
       The  remove() function causes the file or empty directory whose name is
       the string pointed to by	path to	be no longer accessible	by that	 name.
       A  subsequent  attempt to open that file	using that name	will fail, un-
       less the	file is	created	anew.

       For files, remove() is identical	to   unlink().	For  directories,  re-
       move() is identical to rmdir().

       See rmdir(2) and	unlink(2) for a	detailed list of failure conditions.

RETURN VALUES
       Upon  successful	 completion, remove() returns 0. Otherwise, it returns
       -1 and sets errno to indicate an	error.
