regedit arguments

i've used this command "regedit file.reg" inorder to insert entries to the registry.
is there a way to remove registry entries by using the regedit command ?
is there a different way ( i m searching 4 an automatic way) ?

Yes, you can use:

REGEDIT /D _path_to_key_to_delete_

Since you asked this in the programming area, however, I don't recommend this approach at all.  Using REGEDIT like this is risky.  If your program needs to add or delete registry keys, you should use the RegXXX API functions to do the work.  See the docs on RegOpenKeyEx(), RegCreateKeyEx(), RegDeleteKey().
