Do you want to delete old files basis on some criteria?
ie you want to delete all oldest files but not new 40 files.
or
you want to delete files generated sydate - 3.. or explain bit more...

set DAY=`date|nawk '{print $3}'`
set DIR1=/u500/oracle/mydb/oraarc

foreach lg (`ls ${DIR1} | grep arc | grep -v Z`)

    set FILE_DATE=`ls -l ${DIR1}/${lg} |nawk '{print $7}'`

    if ( ${DAY} != ${FILE_DATE} ) then

        rm ${DIR1}/${lg}

    endif
end
