a Unix utility for tracking down wasted disk space

Unix provides the standard du utility, which scans your disk and tells you which directories contain the largest amounts of data. That can help you narrow your search to the things most worth deleting.

However, that only tells you what's big. What you really want to know is what's too big. By itself, du won't let you distinguish between data that's big because you're doing something that needs it to be big, and data that's big because you unpacked it once and forgot about it.

To make this difference, agedu relies on the atime of the files.

TODO list for agedu

 - flexibility in the HTML report output mode: expose the internal
   mechanism for configuring the output filenames, and allow the
   user to request individual files with hyperlinks as if the other
   files existed. (In particular, functionality of this kind would
   enable other modes of use like the built-in --cgi mode, without
