Wine is a way to run Windows software on Linux, but with no Windows required. Wine is an open-source Windows compatibility layer that can run Windows programs directly on any Linux desktop. Essentially, Wine is trying to re-implement enough of Windows from scratch so that it can run all those Windows applications without actually needing Windows.
User has files that can probably be deleted later but does not feel comfortable deleting right now. Instruct with simple commands in which the file names and delay time are specified, eg.:
Delayter -m 1 -w 2 -d 3 file1 file2
by which file1 and file2 are scheduled for deletion 1 month, 2 weeks and 3 days from now (roughly 47 days).
Useful on projects with many temporary junk files that cannot be deleted until a later time at which you might not remember whether they are important or not.
There are safeguards to protect against accidental deletion. Scheduled deletions can be viewed and also retracted. Files will not be deleted if they have been modified since scheduled for deletion.
The documentation at the Delayter web site is well-written and extensive. Please take a minute to read the "Overview" section.
- Filenames in the scheduled deletion database can be listed
- can instruct to operate only in the current working directory or folders in and below it
- Verbosity level of output can be controlled
