How to delete some characters or a line from a file using ATEasy commands?

Hi there! How can I delete some characters (or a whole string line) from a text file using ATEasy file I/O commands? Any help is welcomed.

There no such command in ATEasy or C/Windows API. You will have to read the whole file to a string, close it, remove the line using string manipulation functions and rewrite the file.
Another way is to read a line at a time from the file in a loop using FileRead with terminator "\r\n" and write to another file just the lines you need. At the end you can delete the old file and rename the new one to the old.
