                               TO BE OBSOLETED

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

 SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]
      /usr/lbin/uucp/uucleanup [-C time] [-D time] [-W time] [-X time] [-m
      string] [-o time] [-s system] [-x debug_level]

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

      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.

    Options    [Toc]    [Back]
      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.

           -mstring       This string is included in the warning message
                          generated by the -W option.  The default string is
                          See your local administrator to locate the

           -otime         Other files whose age is more than time days are
                          deleted.  The default time is 2 days.

           -ssystem       Clean-up the spool directory for system only.  The
                          default is to clean-up all spool directories.

           -xdebug_level  The debug level is a single digit between 0 and 9.
                          The higher the numbers, the more detailed the
                          debugging information returned.

      This program is typically started by the script uudemon.cleanu, which
      should be started by cron (see cron(1M)).
