FILE_DELETE permissions ?


OK, stuck again.  I am trying to use FILE_DELETE within a procedure to
delete image files after I read and view them.  I keep getting the
permission denied error when the procedure runs. However, I can successfully
delete the file at the IDL command line ?  Any ideas ?

Incidently, the files are symbolic links residing in a local  NFS mounted
directory (pointing to a unix drive on the net).  I am running IDL5.4 on a
NT box as Administrator.  I can delete the file both from the IDL command
line and Windows explorer ?  What is the difference when FILE_DELETE is
executed within a running procedure ?
