deleting random access

Once a record is put into a random access file

how do you delete it. I know how to clear it so it contains

no data, but the record is still there even thought it is empty.

Any ideas?




  • I use something like:

    I read all all non-blank records into an array, close then reopen the file for output to set it's length to zero, then close and reopen to random and put the records back. I know it's long and round-about and a pain, but it's the only way I've figured out how to do it.

    Hope this helps!
