NAME
       charon.local - remove backup files that exceed a	certain	age from a
       local directoy

SYNOPSIS
       charon.local --dir directory --maxage days (--profile identifier	|
       --all) [--dry-run] [--verbose] [--help]

       The program charon.local	removes	backup archives	created	by tartarus
       from a local directory once they	reach a	certain	age and	expire.	Files
       that are	older than the number of days specified	on the command line
       are considerer candidates for removal unless other, non-expired backups
       are based on them, so full backups may survive longer than expected.

OPTIONS	AND ARGUMENTS
       --dir
	   Specify the directory the backups files are stored in.

       --maxage	n
	   Set the maximum number of days after	which a	backup is expired.

       --profile name
	   Set the profile name	to process. This is mandatory unless --all is
	   supplied.

       --all
	   When	this is	set, charon.local operates on all files	disregarding
	   the profile name.

       --dry-run
	   This	option prevents	charon from actually deleting files.

       --verbose
	   This	option makes charon more verbose about the actions made

       --help
	   This	parameter shows	a brief	command	reference.

EXAMPLE
       The following command will remove alle files inside the directory
       /var/backups/tartarus/ created by Tartarus with the profile name	"home"
       which exceed the	age of 7 days:

	   $ charon.local --dir	/var/tartarus/backups/ --profile home --maxage 7 --verbose
