PHP delete() Function

Hello folks! welcome back to a new edition of our tutorial on PHP. In this tutorial guide, we are going to be studying about the PHP delete() Function.

The built-in PHP delete() function deletes a file.


Following below is the syntax to use this function -

void delete ( string file )

This function is a dummy manual entry to satisfy those of you looking for the unlink() or unset() at the wrong place.

Return Value

This built-in PHP function returns TRUE on success and FALSE on failure.


Try out the below example -

   echo delete("/PhpProject/sample.txt");
   echo "File has been deleted successfully";


When the above code is executed, it will produce the following result -

File has been deleted successfully
