bool remove(const path& p);
bool remove(const path& p, error_code& ec) noexcept;
Effects: If exists(symlink_status(p, ec)), the file p is removed as if by POSIX remove(). [ Note: A symbolic link is itself removed, rather than the file it resolves to. — end note ]
Returns: false if p did not exist, otherwise true. The signature with argument ec returns false if an error occurs.
