UUCLEANUP(8C)                                                    UUCLEANUP(8C)

       uucleanup - UUCP spool directory clean-up

       /usr/lib/uucp/uucleanup [ -Ctime ] [ -Dtime ] [ -mstring ] [ -otime ] [
       -ssystem ] [ -Wtime ] [ -x debug_level ] [ -Xtime ]

       This command is available with the uucp software  installation  option.
       Refer to for information on how to install optional software.

       uucleanup will scan the spool directories for old files and take appro-
       priate action to remove them in a useful way:

              o   Inform the requestor of send/receive  requests  for  systems
                  that cannot be reached.

              o   Return mail, which cannot be delivered, to the sender.

              o   Delete  or  execute rnews for rnews type files (depending on
                  where the news originated -- locally or remotely).

              o   Remove all other files.

       In addition, there is provision to warn users  of  requests  that  have
       been  waiting for a given number of days (default 1 day).  Note: uucle-
       anup will process as if all option times were specified to the  default
       values unless time is specifically set.

       This  program  is typically started by the shell uudemon.cleanup, which
       should be started by cron(8).

       -Ctime Remove any C.  files that are at least time days old (default  7
              days), and send appropriate information to the requestor.

       -Dtime Remove  any D.  files that are at least time days old (default 7
              days), and make an attempt to deliver mail messages and  execute
              rnews when appropriate.

              Include  this  line  in  the warning message generated by the -W
              option.  The default line is `See your  local  administrator  to
              locate the problem'.

       -otime Delete  other  files that are more than time days old (default 2

              Execute for the spool directory for  the  remote  system  system

       -Wtime Send  a  mail  message to be sent to the requestor warning about
              the delay in contacting the remote for any C.   files  that  are
              time  days old (default 1 day).  The message includes the JOBID,
              and in the case of mail, the mail  message.   The  administrator
              may  include  a  message  line telling whom to call to check the
              problem (-m option).

       -x debug_level
              Produce debugging output on the standard output.  debug_level is
              a  number  between  0  and  9; higher numbers give more detailed
              information.  5, 7, and 9 are good numbers  to  try;  they  give
              increasing amounts of detail.

       -Xtime Remove  any X.  files that are at least time days old (default 2
              days).  The D.  files are probably not present  (if  they  were,
              the  X.   could get executed).  But if there are D.  files, they
              will be taken care of by D.  processing.
