<storage, operating system> (GFR) An ITS and LISP Machine utility to remove files according to some program-automated or semi-automatic manual procedure, especially one designed to reclaim mass storage space or reduce name-space clutter (the original GFR actually moved files to tape).
See also prowler, reaper. Compare GC, which discards only provably worthless stuff.
