Delete existing Common Data Format (CDF) file




cdflib.delete(cdfId) deletes the existing CDF file specified by the identifier cdfId. If the CDF file is a multi-file format CDF, the cdflib.delete function also deletes the variable files (having file extensions of .z0, .z1, etc.).


Create a CDF file, and then delete it. To run this example, you must be in a writable folder.

cdfId = cdflib.create('mytempfile.cdf');

% Verify that the file was created.
ls *.cdf


% Delete the file.

% Verify that the file no longer exists.
ls *.cdf


This function corresponds to the CDF library C API routine CDFdeleteCDF.

To use this function, you must be familiar with the CDF C interface. Read the CDF documentation at the CDF website.
