This function deletes variables, attributes, and coordinate variables from NCL.


	procedure delete(


Any variable of any type or dimensionality.


This function is used to delete variables, attributes, and coordinate variables from NCL. delete does not work for deleting file variables, file attributes, or file coordinate variables. When a variable is passed in, all of the memory associated with the variable's value and its reference in the symbol table are removed. If an attribute or coordinate variable is passed in, it is deleted from the variable it belongs to. Note that if the variable being deleted is an HLU object and the variable contains the only reference to that HLU object, the HLU object will be destroyed. See NhlDestroy for the ability to destroy HLU objects without deleting the variable it points to.
