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.
