    I'm new to Rexx and have the task of moving our old rexx commands from OS2 to WinNT. Most of the commands will move straight over but Regina doesnt recognise "SysFileDelete". Can anyone tell me what command I use to delete a file? There doesnt seem to be anything in the Regina documentation. Help!
    Thanks
    Rob

      SysFileDelete (and other functions) are not an integrated  part of the REXX interpreter, but rather are implemented in an external function library such as REXXUTIL.DLL  For Win32 (and other) platforms you will want an equivalent such as those available at  http://www.interlog.com/~ptjm/  "RegUtil" and "w32funcs" are both very useful.       As always when migrating between platforms, careful study and lots of testing are needed to ensure proper and expected functionality.
