Using Thin Client is it possible to use C$DELETE to delete files on the client?

Problem:

Is it possible to use the "@[DISPLAY]:" prefix to delete a file on the PC using the C$DELETE routine or use CBL_DELETE_FILE routine to delete the file when running Thin Client?

Resolution:

At this point this is not possible to use the C$DELETE or CBL_DELETE_FILE routines to perform actions on a client machine.

However it is possible to create a batch (.bat or .cmd) file on the client machine which uses the DOS delete command and execute it using the C$SYSTEM library routine with the CSYS-DESKTOP parameter.
