Hi Expert,

I have figured out how to allow users to upload images to an "image" directory on my server, and how to manage these files in mysql.  What I can't figure out is how, if they want to delete an image, how to actually delete it from the server using a perl CGI script.  I *could* just leave it in the image directory, but I don't want to bc it will use unnecessary space.
