Example: remove

This example, for the Windows platform, creates a new directory, xyz, and a new file under the directory, short_lifespan.txt. It then deletes the new file with remove.

    extern int errno;
    char filename[1024], command[1024];
    char new_dir[] = "C:\\xyz";
    // Create a directory under root called xyz and make it the current dir 
    if (mkdir(new_dir)) {
        lr_output_message ("Create directory %s failed", new_dir);
        return -1;
        lr_output_message ("Created new directory %s", new_dir);
    // Create a new file in the new directory. The text is the output of a dir command on the new directory 
    sprintf(filename, "%s\\%s", new_dir, "short_lifespan.txt");
    sprintf(command, "dir %s > %s /w", new_dir, filename );
    lr_output_message ("Created new file %s", filename);
    // Now delete the file 
    if (remove(filename) == 0)
        lr_output_message ("Removed new file %s", filename);
        lr_output_message ("Unable to remove %s error %d", filename, errno);
Example: Output:
Action.c(13): Created new directory C:\xyz
Action.c(20): Created new file C:\xyz\short_lifespan.txt
Action.c(24): Removed new file C:\xyz\short_lifespan.txt
