Description: cleans up files in directories based on their age
This package provides a program that can be used to clean out temporary-file
directories. It recursively searches the directory, refusing to chdir()
across symlinks, and removes files that haven't been accessed in a
user-specified amount of time. You can specify a set of files to protect
from deletion with a shell pattern. It will not remove files owned by the
process EUID that have the `w' bit clear, unless you ask it to, much like
`rm -f'. `tmpreaper' will not remove symlinks, sockets, fifos, or special
files unless given a command line option enabling it to.
WARNING: Please do not run `tmpreaper' on `/'. There are no protections
against this written into the program, as that would prevent it from
functioning the way you'd expect it to in a `chroot(8)' environment.
The daily tmpreaper run can be configured through /etc/tmpreaper.conf .
