In utl_file package, is there any procedure to rename or delete a file? I only know FCLOSE and FOPEN procedures, anyone knows know to rename or delete a file? thanks.

Not through UTL_FILE (you can sort of do an ugly rename by reading the source file and writing it out with a different filename, but certainly not a delete).

You would need to use an external C proc or Java procedure (both of which you can call from PL/SQL) to handle the file management.
