Hi there,

I want to delete file(s) and to catch the error if the file(s) don't exist.
For that I can write the following code:

    pattern = "c:/WinNt/*"
    num = File.delete(pattern)
    if (0 == num) then
        printf("%s: could not delete file(s) %s\n", ARGV[0], pattern)
    end

The problem is that there is a runtime error, if there are no valid files.
In the online documentation I can't find a hint about the File::delete()
method throws an exception or not. If not how can I find out, if the files
given by "pattern" do exist ?


Thanks in advance,

Daniel.
