COBOL program to delete a PS file

COBOL program to delete a PS file I have a requirement where I need to delete a file if a particular condition is met in the cobol program. Now this may sound strange to you, but thats how the requirement is. I have never deleted a file using COBOL, JCL is the one that is supposed to handle such requests.  I have one solution in my mind, that is to set RETURN-CODE register in the COBOL program to some value lets say 55 when the condition to delete is met in the cobol program and in the subsequent step in JCL, I will delete the file using IEFBR14 if the RC is 55. I hope this would work, I am looking for some alternate solutions to this problem. “; ; ; ;
