       expirerm - Remove articles that have been expired


       expirerm file


       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.
