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 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.
