    How to delete a file with java (see mine code)

    This program should delete cookedBooks.txt, but it doesnt. I created cookedBooks.txt in a folder. Can somebody push me in the right directions.

    import static java.lang.System.out;
    import java.util.Scanner;
    class DeleteEvidence {
    	public static void main(String[] args) {
    		File evidence = new File("cookedBooks.txt");
    		Scanner keyboard = new Scanner(;
    		char reply;
    		do	{
    			System.out.println("Delete Evidence? (Y/N) ");
    			reply = 
    		} while (reply != 'y' && reply != 'n');
    		if (reply == 'y') {
    			System.out.println("here we go");
    		System.out.println("Has been deleted");

    You need to place the file to be deleted in the main project folder outside the "src" folder.
