How to remove a file in perl ?

I searched in perlfunc, but I didn't find such function. It seems evident that the reader have to know the language C i.e. the fonction "unlink"

That's mostly because you don't remove files, just links to it. You can unlink a file without deleting the data. This may be a good candidate for a FAQ though.

works for me. *shrug*
