EXPIRERM(8) EXPIRERM(8)

NAME expirerm - remove articles that have been expired.

SYNOPSIS expirerm file

DESCRIPTION Expirerm is a script that removes a list of files. The specified file lists the files. It is sorted, and then fed into a pipeline responsi- ble for doing the removal, normally fastrm(8). If there seemed to be a problem removing the files, then mail is sent to the news administra- tor. If there were no problems, then file is renamed to <pathlog in inn.conf>/expire.list where it is kept (for safety) until the next time expiration is done.
