Data base destruction

Once a project is completed and the data have been secured by an extraction, the cwdestruction module is used to get rid of the data base itself. The program requests that the keyword "DESTRUCTION" be typed in to confirm the intentions of the user. The write-access password must also be supplied if it is defined in the cwNav write password pound instruction.

This module is the only one (other than cwcompile, of course) which works even if the questionnaire file is not available. This allows for the destruction of data bases even if the questionnaire file was deleted (or otherwise rendered inaccessible) before the data base.

There is no further confirmation of the destruction command, so be extremely prudent in using this module.
