NAME

       backup-manager-purge - backup-manager's wrapper for outdating files

SYNOPSIS

       backup-manager-purge [TTL] <options>

DESCRIPTION

       backup-manager-purge is the only authorized entity that can say if an archive should be
       purged or not. Any tasks used by backup-manager may have to know if an archive is
       deprecated (eg: the purging phase of an upload method). This tool is here to fulfill that
       need.

       Given a time to live (TTL) and a list of archives, backup-manager-purge will return
       another list of archives, corresponding to the ones that are outdated by the TTL.

REQUIRED ARGS

       --ttl=time-to-live
           Specify the time to live (in days) for the archives. Any archive that is older than
           ttl days will be outdated.

OPTIONAL ARGS

       --files-from=file
           A file containing a list of archives to parse, one archive per line.  If this option
           is not used, STDIN will be used for catching the files to parse.

RETURN

       backup-manager-purge will return the list of outdated files on STDOUT, one file per line.

ERROR CODES

       If an error occurs, it will print the error message on stderr and will exit with an error
       code greater than 0.

       Here are the possible error codes:

       bad command line (wrong arguments) : 10
       internal error (should be reported as a bug) : 20
