Include delete program

Hello,
is it possible to include a delete program into FC?

I would like to include it like Teracopy in the ini file with the parameter "FileMovePrg" or "FileCopyPrg".

Is a parameter "FileDeletePrg" included to FC?

I already thought of something like that - for the future version. Have you an example of such program for testing?

Hi,
one possibility could be to use the shell command "del" of windows which is a lot of quicker than the standard delete command of windows.
Another possibility could be sdelete of sysinternals, but I think this would be overkill for the current problem

I would be more than happy to write any testing app required to get this feature into FreeCommander. Having an ini for FileDeletePrg makes perfect sense. What people want is the ability to delete files in a background thread, adding FileDeletePrg would make this possible.

Marek please PM me if you want me to supply an application for testing.

BTW, I would recommend you open source this application!!

'FileDeletePrg' option in 'freecommander.ini' would be a great addition to this software configuration... definitively.
I look forward to this option as soon as possible to configure it with TeraCopy as well.

And the important part: "to delete in a separate thread". Also being able to put the delete in the background and having the FC interface operational.
