[LDM #JEK-162128]: Using scour with grbfile.sh

Hi Carol,

Sounds good.

> Do I need to edit anything in the scourBYday script? Like lines 170 and

Lines 170 and 171 setup defaults for the directory hierarchy to be
scoured and the number of days to keep, respectively.  I always try
to provide defaults that can be overridden by user-specified values
on the invocation command line.

Yes. In fact, I would try running this by hand so you can see the output
from scourBYday:

<as 'ldm'>
cd ~ldm 
util/scourBYday /data/ldm/pub/native/satellite 14

OK, sounds like you can use the exact same crontab entries that we are
using.  That should make things simple for both of us :-)
