^ID

The
^ID
command deletes objects, graphics, fonts, and stored formats from storage areas. Objects can be deleted selectively or in groups. This command can be used within a printing format to delete objects before saving new ones, or in a stand-alone format to delete objects.

Comments:
When an object is deleted from
R:
, the object can no longer be used and memory is available for storage. This applies only to
R:
memory. With the other memory types (
A:
,
B:
,
E:
) the deleted object is no longer available. The memory space recovers when an automatic defragmentation or initialization occurs.
The
^ID
command also frees up the uncompressed version of the object in DRAM.
If the name is specified as
*.ZOB
, all downloaded bar code fonts (or other objects) are deleted.
If the named downloadable object cannot be found in the
R:
,
E:
,
B:
, and
A:
device, the
^ID
command is ignored.
