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


Syntax: KILL filespec$


  • Filespec is a literal or variable string path and/or filename. Path is relative to program's current location.
  • KILL cannot remove an OPEN file. The program MUST CLOSE it first.
  • If the path or file does not exist, a "File not found" or "Path not found" error will result.
  • WARNING: Use this statement carefully! There is no prompt for permission to continue!


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