/path for ninpaths
finds dump files generated in the past report-days
days, makes sure
they are valid by running ninpaths
on each one and making sure the exit
status is zero, and passes them to ninpaths
to generate a cumulative
report. By default, that report is mailed to the e-mail addresses configured
at the beginning of this script (by default, only one address is configured:
<firstname.lastname@example.org>) in order to supply the TOP1000 project with
useful statistics. See <http://top1000.anthologeek.net/> for more
When finished, sendinpaths
deletes all dump files in pathlog
that are older than keep-days
For more information on how to set up ninpaths
, see ninpaths
- When this flag is used, the report is also e-mailed,
besides the default submission addresses or those given as command-line
arguments, to the newsmaster's address set at configure time.
- Enables debug messages.
- Gives usage information.
- -k keep-days
- After having processed dump files, sendinpaths
removes those that are older than keep-days days. The default is 0,
that is to say to remove all dump files.
Setting keep-days to another value can be useful for debugging
purpose because it permits to keep a few dump files.
- Don't e-mail the report; instead, just print it to standard
output. Don't delete old dump files.
- -r report-days
- Process dump files generated during the last
report-days days. The default is 32, that is to say to process all
the dump files that have been generated during the last 32 days (if, of
course, they have not been deleted yet by a previous run of
sendinpaths according to the value set by the -k flag).
- address ...
- E-mail the report to the mentioned address or addresses,
instead of the default one. Several addresses can be used, separated by
whitespace (sending the e-mail to your own e-mail address can be useful
for debugging purpose, to check that everything works fine). For instance,
for two addresses:
sendinpaths email@example.com firstname.lastname@example.org
