        Thanks for your answer.
Cord Beermann asked me why do I want to run this ?
I have not a big cache directory, so I wanted to remove the expired objects,
every day . Now I see that it will be enough if I'll use the ttl_pattern
definition to do this (e.g weekly or monthly).
        Killing or sending a SIGTERM signal to squid every day, is may be
painful. 'Cause the squid dies then you start a new process.
