Cacheclean is python script to clean {{ic|/var/cache/pacman/pkg}} allowing users to specify how many package versions should be retained.  In function, it is similar to {{ic|pacman -Sc}} except users select how many old versions to keep.  Another difference is unlike, {{ic|pacman -Sc}} cacheclean does not discriminate against packages that are not currently installed as it inspects {{ic|/var/cache/pacman/pkg}}.
== Installation ==
[[AUR]] package: {{AUR|cacheclean}}
== Usage ==
{{bc|cacheclean {-p} {-v} <# of copies to keep>
# of copies to keep - (required) how many generations of each package to keep
-p - (optional) preview what would be deleted; forces verbose (-v) mode.
-v - (optional) show deleted packages.}}
== Code ==
For those wishing to contribute, the script's source code is hosted in [https://github.com/graysky2/cacheclean/tree/master/cacheclean this github repository].  To simplify updates, please fork and send a pull request with updates/changes.
