The KILL statement deletes a path file name designated by a STRING value or variable.


Syntax: KILL filespec$


  • Filespec can be a literal or variable string path and filename.
  • KILL does not ask for verification! Be careful! Don't delete empty files in the root directory or Windows!
  • To KILL a file in use, a program MUST CLOSE it first.
  • KILL does not ask permission or verify that a file has been deleted.
  • If the path or file does not exist, a "File not found" error will result.



Example: KILL "C:\Qbasic\data\2000data.dat"
