AIX Tip of the Week: Using AIX's "skulker" Command to Purge Unwanted Files

Audience: Systems Administrators

Date: September 1, 2000

AIX's skulker command is a shell script that can be used to periodically purge obsolete or unneeded files. The skulker script is normally run by a cron job during off-peak periods (uncomment the "skulker" line in root's crontab). You can modify skulker to suit local needs.
