# Purpose
#
###########################################################################

   TrimSpool  is  designed  as an aid to those running a system receiving a
UseNet feed. Simply, its purpose it to scan through the spool directory and
delete any files equal to or over a certain age (in days) specified by you.

   If  you run AmigaUUCP 1.16 or earlier, you'll know that there is no easy
way  to  have  any  bad  or unprocessed mail packets deleted for you - more
often  than  not,  you  have to go through the spool directory manually and
delete  old  mail packets. TrimSpool was written to keep you from having to
do that.

   For  a  complete  list  of  improvements  since the last version of this
program, see the section "Revisions & Planned Enhancements".

# Features
#
###########################################################################

TrimSpool has the following features:

* Permits trimming files equal to or over a certain age (in days) specified
* Permits you to specify the spool directory to process
* Can be run from any script (ideal for use with BBS systems)
* Quiet operation possible
* Debugging features built-in for reporting problems to the author





###########################################################################
#
# Requirements
#
###########################################################################

In order to use TrimSpool, you must have the following:

*  An Amiga computer

*  An  active  UseNet  feed  with UUCP software installed and working. (The
   "AmigaUUCP"  package  by  Matt  Dillon  will  permit you to connect your
   system  to  another  UseNet system - see that package for details or ask
   your local Internet guru for help.)

*  Workbench 2.0 or better

*  ARexx (must be installed - see your Amiga manual for details)

*  The "TrimSpool.rexx" ARexx script (supplied)



What you do NOT need to use TrimSpool:

*  TrimSpool  does NOT require any special BBS package. It can, however, be
   used with ANY bulletin board system package with no problems. (TrimSpool
   operates completely independently of both AmigaUUCP and any BBS software
   which you may have in operation.)

*  TrimSpool does NOT require any special registration keys to work.
