Chapter 11: Aging, Archiving, and Deleting Files
Files grow. It’s a fact of life. There are log files in /var/log (they may be in /var/adm, or somewhere else, depending on your system). In my mail directory I have saved-messages, and sent-mail, and files for the various mailing lists I’m on. In my Chess directory, fics.pgn stores every game of chess I play online. Files in my News directory swell with my Usenet posts.
