uuclean - uucp spool directory clean-up
uuclean scans the spool directories for files with the specified
prefix and deletes all those that are older than the specified number
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)).
