function file_usage_delete

7.x file_usage_delete(stdClass $file, $module, $type = NULL, $id = NULL, $count = 1)

Removes a record to indicate that a module is no longer using a file.

The file_delete() function is typically called after removing a file usage to remove the record from the file_managed table and delete the file itself.


$file: A file object.

$module: The name of the module using the file.

$type: (optional) The type of the object that contains the referenced file. May be omitted if all module references to a file are being deleted.

$id: (optional) The unique, numeric ID of the object containing the referenced file. May be omitted if all module references to a file are being deleted.

$count: (optional) The number of references to delete from the object. Defaults to 1. 0 may be specified to delete all references to the file within a specific object.
