Remove command not deleting file.

Hello, I was wondering if repl.it is able to completely remove a file using the remove function in c++. It seems to be able to do so, but the file comes back after I refresh.

This is because files are broken on repl.it. There are no plans to change this. They have confirmed that they aren't going to allow files to be modified and changed though the program.

@Zavexeon As long as you're in the IDE, the files will work. But for servers, which you're usually not in the IDE, the files will not update.
