Syntax: KILL filename$
- The filename can have a path to a different directory. The filename can be a set string value in quotation marks.
- KILL does not ask for verification! Be careful! Don't delete empty files in the root directory or Windows!
- To KILL a file it MUST be CLOSEd.
- KILL does not verify that a file has been deleted.
- If the file did not exist, a "File not found" error will result.
