      uuclean - uucp spool directory clean-up

      /usr/lbin/uucp/uuclean [options]

      uuclean scans the spool directories for files with the specified
      prefix and deletes all those that are older than the specified number
      of hours.

      uuclean recognizes the following options:

	   -ddirectory	  Clean directory instead of the spool directory.
			  If directory is not a valid spool directory, it
			  cannot contain ``work files''; i.e., files whose
			  names start with C..	These files have special
			  meaning to uuclean pertaining to uucp job

	   -ppre	  Scan for files with pre as the file prefix.  Up to
			  10 -p arguments can be specified.  A -p without
			  any pre following will cause all files older than
			  the specified time to be deleted.

	   -ntime	  Files whose age is more than time hours are
			  deleted if the prefix test is satisfied (default
			  time is 72 hours).

	   -wfile	  The default action for uuclean is to remove files
			  that are older than a specified time (see -n
			  option).  The -w option is used to find files
			  older than time hours; however, the files are not
			  deleted.  If the argument file is present the
			  warning is placed in file; otherwise, the warnings
			  go to the standard output.

	   -ssys	  Only files destined for system sys are examined.
			  Up to 10 -s arguments can be specified.

	   -mfile	  The -m option sends mail to the owner of the file
			  when it is deleted.  If a file is specified, an
			  entry is placed in file.

      This program is typically started by cron (see cron(1M)).
