I am using an ODBC connection to a Pervasive SQL table.  I use a SQL statement to delete certain records from the table.  When I a finished the records are deleting correctly but the table is now twice the size as it was before.  Is there some utility or command that should be run after deleting records to reclaim space in the table?

Actually, the space will be reclaimed as new records are added.  If you need the space back sooner, you can use the Rebuild Utility or BUTIL.  Using BUTIL, you would CLONE then COPY the data.  Rebuild works on the actual file so you'd want everyone out of the system when you do it.
