remove a file from the file system
Remove(file, file2, ..., opts)
file1, file2, ...
one or more filenames or descriptors
(optional) options as described below
force=one of true or false
The optional argument force controls Remove's behavior when the named file does not exist. If force=false then an error is raised. This is the default behavior. If force=true then no error is raised.
The Remove(file1, file2, ...) command deletes files from the file system.
The Remove function does not return anything.
If file refers to an open file, it is automatically closed and then deleted.
Errors that occur while removing individual files are tagged, and Remove continues until it reaches the end of the list, then throws an error reporting all files that it was unable to remove.
