       dndel - Delete a file on a VMS system


       dndel [options] file-name


       dndel  deletes  files  held  on VMS systems. The filename parameter may
       specify a single file or a wildcard (remember to use VMS wildcards).

       If you specify -i or -v then dndel will open two connections to the VMS
       machine  (much  as VMS itself does). Otherwise it will attempt to use a
       single connection. One side-effect of this is that the deletion process
       will fail at the first file that cannot be deleted.


       -i     Interactive. Prompt before deleting a file.

       -v     Verbose. Print the names of files that have been deleted

       -T connect timeout
              Specifies  the  maximum  amount of time the command will wait to
              establish a connection with the remote node. a 0 here will cause
              it to wait forever. The default is 60 seconds

       -h -?  Displays help for using the command.

       -V     Show the version of the tools package that dndel comes from.


         dndel -i ’myvax::oldfile;*’

         dndel ’tramp"christine pjc123"::interactive’
