backup-manager-purge - backup-manager's wrapper for outdating files
backup-manager-purge [TTL] <options>
is the only authorized entity that can say if an
archive should be purged or not. Any tasks used by backup-manager may have to
know if an archive is deprecated (eg: the purging phase of an upload method).
This tool is here to fulfill that need.
Given a time to live (TTL)
and a list of archives,
will return another list of archives,
corresponding to the ones that are outdated by the TTL.
- Specify the time to live (in days) for the archives. Any
archive that is older than ttl days will be outdated.
- A file containing a list of archives to parse, one archive
per line. If this option is not used, STDIN will be used for catching the
files to parse.
will return the list of outdated files on STDOUT,
one file per line.
If an error occurs, it will print the error message on stderr and will exit with
an error code greater than 0.
Here are the possible error codes:
- bad command line (wrong arguments) : 10
- internal error (should be reported as a bug) : 20
