MyPurgeLogs is a script that can delete files older than a number of days and can rotate and compress other files. It simply reads a configuration file to know what it must do. Wildcards for directories and files are allowed. The compression's method is determined to optimize the free space on the filesystem. This script has only been tested on AIX.
