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.
