 NAME
      uuclean - uucp spool directory clean-up

 SYNOPSIS
      /usr/lbin/uucp/uuclean [options]

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

    Options
      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
			  statistics.

	   -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)).
