Probleme to erase a file


when i try to erase the file:

i got:

Invalid or incomplete multibyte or wide character - not able to delete the file: /opt/good/log/alarm.txt

       printf("%s - not able to delete the file: %s\n",strerror (errno),fname))
any idea?

It sounds like fname is a wide character string. It needs to be an ASCII string.

fname is a char array (char fname[75]);

the value of fname is: /opt/good/log/alarm.txt
