# if you want to delete "data.bed", "data.bim" and "data.fam", run like this:
# delete_files_plink("data")

# The following example is more awkward
# because (only for these examples) the package must create *temporary* files to actually delete

# create dummy BED/BIM/FAM files
file <- tempfile('delete-me-test') # no extension
# add each extension and create empty files
file.create( paste0(file, '.bed') )
file.create( paste0(file, '.bim') )
file.create( paste0(file, '.fam') )

# delete the BED/BIM/FAM files we just created
delete_files_plink(file)
