Automating Tasks with Skulker
Unix Review's Shell Corner tells us about
"According to the Jargon File, skulker, prowler, and reaper are synonyms
for "a daemon that is run periodically (typically once a week) to seek
out and erase core files, truncate administrative logfiles, nuke lost+found
directories, and otherwise clean up the cruft that tends to pile up in
the corners of a file system" (1)."
