The original question was how to delete a file created with CPYTOPCD,
which also can only be used with /QDLS.

An alternative command, CPYTOSTMF, was created about 9 years ago that
works with anything in the IFS, but DLTDLO is more like the "DLTPCD"
command that the poster wanted (for some unknown reason.)

Actually the names "CPYTOPCD" and CPYFRMPCD" are one of my bigger pet
peeves with the way things are named in OS/400.  It really annoys me that
they refer to stream files as "PC documents" as if their made up of
special bytes that only PCs can read.

But, at least when IBM made new versions they correctly referred to them
as stream files.
