DELETE url

Testing DELETE is scary. Consider httpstat.us <http://httpstat.us/>, httpbin.org <http://httpbin.org/> or others for safe testing.

I haven't tested, but I'd think that 'delete URL "http://www.example.com/oldthings.txt <http://www.example.com/oldthings.txt>"' should work. 

You might need to pass along some auth:
delete URL "http://badwolf:swordfish@www.example.com/secretthings.txt <http://badwolf:swordfish@www.example.com/secretthings.txt>"

If not, you can directly use TCP. It is as easy as a simple GET. It is as hard as figuring out simple HTTP.

Or consider tsNetCustom() and use "DELETE" as the request.
