Manual Reference Pages - EXPIRERM (8)
expirerm - Remove articles that have been expired
expirerm is a script that removes a list of files. The specified
file lists the files to be removed. It is usually created by
expire -z. This file is sorted, and then fed into a pipeline
responsible for doing the removal, normally fastrm. (You may want
to edit expirerm to change the flags passed to fastrm.)
If there seemed to be a problem removing the files, then a mail is
sent to the news administrator. If there were no problems, then
file is renamed to pathlog/expire.list where it is kept
(for safety) until the next time expiration is done.
