 NAME    [Toc]    [Back]
      uuclean - uucp spool directory clean-up

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

 DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]
      The uucp commands, including uuclean, are targeted for removal from
      HP-UX; see the WARNINGS below.

      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    [Toc]    [Back]
      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)).
