Cacheclean is python script to clean /var/cache/pacman/pkg allowing users to specify how many package versions should be retained. In function, it is similar to pacman -Sc except users select how many old versions to keep. Another difference is unlike, pacman -Sc cacheclean does not discriminate against packages that are not currently installed as it inspects /var/cache/pacman/pkg.

Installation

AUR package: cachecleanAUR

Usage

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.
