[thelist] How do I delete uploaded files in PHP?

The file->perm is 0444, and the print you suggested to print out had two //
's in it --- resumes//file_to_delete.txt.
So that was the problem!
I finally got the unlink function to work. Wow, did I waste a lot of time on
that. If it didn't work soon, I was going to use your second suggestion, to
overwrite the file.

Thanks for all your help!

Two quick questions:

What are the permissions being set or defaulted to when the file is moved to
it's final destination by the code example below?

e.g. what is the value of:  $this->file_perm

And if you "print file_exists($full_destination_path_and_name_to_remove);"
What do you get?
