/usr/lbin/uucp/uucleanup [-C time] [-D time] [-W time] [-X time] [-m
string] [-o time] [-s system] [-x debug_level]
uucleanup scans the spool directories for old files and takes
appropriate action to remove them. Depending on the options selected,
uucleanup performs the following:
+ Informs the requestor of send and/or receive requests for
systems that cannot be reached.
+ Returns mail that cannot be delivered to the sender.
+ Removes all other files.
In addition, uucleanup warns users of requestors who have been waiting
for a given number of days (the default is 1 day). Note that unless
time is specifically set, the default time values for the following
options are used.
uucleanup recognizes the following options:
-Ctime Any C. files greater or equal to time days old are
removed with appropriate information to the
requestor. The default time is 7 days.
-Dtime Any D. files greater or equal to time days old are
removed. An attempt is made to deliver mail
messages and execute news when appropriate. The
default time is 7 days.
-Wtime Any C. files equal to time cause a message to be
mailed to the requestor warning about the delay in
contacting the remote. The message includes the
JOBID, and in the case of mail, the mail message.
The administrator can include a message line
telling who to call to correct the problem (see
the -m option). The default time is 1 day.
-Xtime Any X. files greater than or equal to time days
old are removed. The D. files are probably not
present (if they were, the X. could be executed).
But, if D. files are present, they are taken care
of by D. processing. The default time is 2 days.
