You *can* do something like "find /tmp -type f -oldermt '3 days ago' -delete", but that's just addressing the symptoms. -- Kirk Strauser _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
