DELFIL is a program which will delete files (including those
with Rib Errors) from the disk.
2.1 Loading Instructions
There are no assembly parameters
2.2 Run Instructions
/D - Delete the named file. If FILE.EXT is a UFD, first
delete all those files contained in the UFD which do not
have Rib errors.
/S - Delete the named file with SUPER USETO, whether or not
there is a Rib Error on the LOOKUP. If the named file is a
UFD, do not attempt to delete any files in it.
/R - Delete all files in the named UFD which have Rib
errors. Do not alter non-Rib error files. DEV="DSK", or
omitted, implies all STR's in the job's search list.
Otherwise, DEV must be the name of an STR.
/C - Clean the disk, delete all the UFD's (except [1,1],
[1,2], [1,4], [3,3] and [10,1]) which are both empty and not
logged in. DEV="DSK", or omitted, implies all STR's in
system. Otherwise, DEV must be the name of an STR.
In order to delete anything other than a non-Rib error file
the job must be logged in under [1,2]

3.0 Operating Notes
Note that Rib error files are removed by SUPER USETO.Thus,
their blocks are lost (not returned to the free-block pool)
until the disk is refreshed.
