how to delete a file after unzip

I don't think there's a built-in StreamBase operator or adapter or function that will delete files.

Perhaps not the most elegant or most platform-independent solution one could imagine, but you could use the External Process Operator to issue a command line (CMD or shell, for Windows or Linux, respectively) command to delete the file.

Another possibility is to write a custom Java plugin operator to do it. (You could do it in a Java plugin function but IMO having side-effecting functions in EventFlow is just a Bad Idea.)

Or you could delegate the file deletion operation to a Python or TERR script, using the Python or TERR operators, respectively. That'd be more cross-platform than the command line, but would also be more moving parts in the architecture to install and manage.
