Does anyone know an easy way to delete a file that has garbage in its name?
I used <Complete> on a name change, and now the file is inaccessible
to the normal deletion methods.
I dont want to test this out, for obvious reasons... but...
You should be able to get hold of a proper pathname object for the beast
using FS:DIRECTORY-LIST, then use DELETE-FILE get rid of it.
