 Automating Tasks with Skulker

Unix Review's Shell Corner tells us about Skulker.

"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)."
