sir i want to ask a question that i am working with filing.when we write a file and save on disk then there any funcution to delete that file.
and secondly if there any function to search files which are present  already on hard drive.
sir waiting for response.

naveed shahzad , Thank you for your question.

Standard C++ comes with two run-time libraries that can perform file input/output, called the C and C++ runtime libraries.

These libraries contain functions to delete files and enumerate the files in a particular directory. Some I/O functions depend on the underlying operating system. No two software development environments have exactly the same libraries.

Information specific to your software development environment is contained in the documentation that accompanies your software development environment.
