UNIX file handling in PL/SQL

I would like to read, write, create and DELETE files on a UNIX system running the DBMS. (Oracle 8.0.5)

I think the UTL_FILE package doesn't support deleting operations...(?)

I found a package called WIN_API_UTL that support this..., but I would like one for the UNIX platform as well.
