I have a file: d:\foo.txt and want to delete this.

I tried: 
system("del d:/foo.txt") works not
system("notepad d:/foo.txt") works

Is it possible that I can't delete files or do I have misunderstood something?

(del is a DOS-command. The "string works" under DOS "\")

Thanks a lot


Windows XP
R 1.6.2 (update!, I know)
