MTA:Eir/FileSystem/translator/delete

From Multi Theft Auto: Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

This function deletes an entry on the translator filesystem. If the path points at a directory, the whole content of it is recursively deleted. A typical reason when deletion may fail is when the file is opened in another OS handle. Proper clean-up of file classes can prevent this issue.

Syntax

bool translator.delete ( string path )

Arguments

  • path: a path to a filesystem object that should be wiped out

Returns

This function returns true if the specified filesystem object could be completely deleted, false otherwise.

Example

Client

This snippet nukes the contents of your client-side resource. It can be used as protective measure when client-side files should not be leaked to curious users.

-- Nuke ourselves.
fileCreateTranslator( "/" ).delete( "/" );
