NAME
       nfarchive - archive notesfiles

SYNOPSIS
       nfarchive [ -# ] [ -d ] [ -m- or -m+ ] [ -w# ] [ -f file ] topic [ ... ]

DESCRIPTION
       Nfarchive is used to expire notes that have not been modified in a certain amount of time.
       Archives are stored in ``archive notesfiles''.

       The -# parameter is the number of days a notestring must be idle (no new responses) before
       being eligible for archival.

       Expired	notestrings  are  either deleted or placed in an archive.  The -d parameter tells
       nfarchive to delete expired notestrings.   If  unselected,  the	expired  notestrings  are
       placed in an archive.

       The  -m+  option specifies that only notes marked with a director message are eligible for
       expiration.  -m- specifies that only notes without a director  message  are  eligible  for
       expiration.  By default, the expiration algorithm is indifferent to a note's director mes-
       sage status.

       The -w# option specified the working set size for the expired notesfiles.   The	specified
       number represents the minimum number of notes to leave in the notesfile.

       The  expiration	threshold,  working  set  size,  expiration  action, and director message
       requirements can all be specified as a director's option in each notesfile.  Specific val-
       ues  override  what is specified on the nfarchive command line.	A default value specifies
       using the value specified on the command line.

       The -f parameter specifies a file containing a list of notesfiles to archive.   Notesfiles
       can also be specified on the command line.

       By  default,  the  archive  of  notesfile /usr/spool/notes/somenotes is in /usr/spool/old-
       notes/somenotes.   The	archive   of   /some/other/place/somenotes   also   defaults   to
       /usr/spool/oldnotes/somenotes.	To  prevent  collisions  of  this nature, mapping between
       active  and  archive  notesfiles  is  implemented.   The   file	 /usr/spool/notes/.utili-
       ties/net.alias/Archive-into contains lines of the form:

	    active-notesfile:archive notesfile

       Lines  in  this file beginning with `#' are comments.  Notesfiles without an entry in this
       file are archived into the /usr/spool/oldnotes directory with the appropriate last  compo-
       nent.

       When  initially created, an archive notesfile has an access list matching its active coun-
       terpart.  Currently, only  directors  are  allowed  to  write  in  an  archive  notesfile.
       Nfarchive refuses to archive an archive notesfile.
