Cannot delete temp file using system() cmd

 Cannot delete temp file using system() cmd

I am using "BIGPERL" -- Perl 4.0M2 patchlevel 36 for DOS/Windows.  My
question is why can't I delete a file using the following command:

        system("del junk.tmp");

My file will not delete in the DOS environment.  However, in the UNIX
side when I issue 'system("rm junk.tmp")', I have no problem.

Any suggestions?
