uucleanup(1M)							 uucleanup(1M)

NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     uucleanup - uucp spool directory clean-up

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

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

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     uucleanup scans the spool directories for old files and takes appropriate
     action to remove them in a	useful way:

	  Inform the requester of send/receive requests	for systems that can
	  not be reached.

	  Return mail that cannot be delivered to the sender.

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

	  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).  Note that	uucleanup
     processes as if all option	times were specified to	the default values
     unless time is specifically set.

     The following options are available:

     -Ctime    Any C. files greater or equal to	time days old are removed with
	       appropriate information to the requester	(default 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 rnews when
	       appropriate (default 7 days).

     -Wtime    Any C. files equal to time days old causes a mail message to be
	       sent to the requester 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 whom to call to check the problem (-m
	       option) (default	1 day).

     -Xtime    Any X. files greater or equal to	time days old are removed.
	       The D. files are	probably not present (if they were, the	X.
	       could get executed).  But if there are D. files,	they are taken
	       care of by D. processing	(default 2 days).

     -mstring  This line is included in	the warning message generated by the
	       -W option.

     -otime    Other files whose age is	more than time days are	deleted
	       (default	2 days).  The default line is "See your	local
	       administrator to	locate the problem".

     -ssystem  Execute for system spool	directory only.

	       The -x debug level is a single digit between 0 and 9; higher
	       numbers give more detailed debugging information.  (If
	       uucleanup was compiled with -DSMALL, no debugging output	is

     This program is typically started by the shell uudemon.cleanup, which
     should be started by cron(1M).
