       int dpns_delete (const char *path)


       dpns_delete  logically  deletes  a  DPNS file entry in the name server.
       The file can be recovered by using  dpns_undelete  as  long  as  a  the
       reclaim utility has not been run on the corresponding tape volume.

       path   specifies  the  logical  pathname  relative  to the current DPNS
              directory or the full DPNS pathname.


       This routine returns 0 if the operation was successful  or  -1  if  the
       operation failed. In the latter case, serrno is set appropriately.
