        acleandir  -  clean  up a directory containing netatalk Apple Macintosh


        acleandir [-rnvi] dirname


        acleandir cleans up the directory dirname. By default it simply removes
        "orphan"  AppleDouble files, i.e. those which do not have a correspond‐
        ing data file.


        -d     Also remove the .AppleDouble directory if it contains no  Apple‐
               Double  files  after  "orphan"  removal. This will result in the
               finder location of dirname within its parent being lost.
        -r, -R Recursive. Clean up directories recursively.
        -n     Display the filenames of "orphans" but don’t remove any. Display
               size if "orphan" appears to contain a resource fork.
        -i     Interactive.  Prompt  for  confirmation before a removal. A y in
               answer confirms that the removal should proceed.
        -v     Verbose. Display the names of  all  "orphans"  and  .AppleDouble
               directories removed. Reports the size if the "orphan" appears to
               contain a resource fork.
        -a     Aggressive. Remove all AppleDouble files,  not  just  "orphans".
               Also  remove  the  .AppleDesktop directory if present. Impies -d
               option. Use with  caution  as  the  Macintosh  type/creator  and
               finder  location  of  all  files will be lost and the content of
               some documents, such as Symantec Projects, will be destroyed.


        returns exit status 0 unless bad options are provided or a directory is
        not given on the command line.
