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.
