On Webkit 2.2.6

Is there any way to clear the cache or preferably clear the cache older 
than last seven days?

Because of the  way we use webkit, current cache size has grown to 60GB+ 
and growing. I would like to clear the cache for the items that are 
older than seven days.

Another thing I am confused about is if a site says cache this file for 
two days, after two days when we refresh the file, does the old file 
gets deleted or its still on the disk?

I thought about executing a "find" command to do the cleanup but worried 
that database still have pointers to older cache entries and not sure 
what the impact will be.
