How to delete a file with garbage in its name

    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.
