exigrep - program to extract information from exim logs
exigrep [-l] pattern [logfile] ...
exigrep is a Perl script, provided in the util directory, that extracts
from one or more log files all entries relevant to any message whose
log entries contain at least one that matches a given pattern. The
pattern match is case-insensitive. Thus one can search for all mail for
a given user or a given host, for example. If no logfiles are
specified, standard input is assumed.
The -l flag means ’literal’, that is, treat all characters in the
pattern as standing for themselves. Otherwise the pattern must be a
Perl regular expression. If no file names are given on the command
line, the standard input is read.
-l The -l flag means ’literal’, that is, treat all characters in
the pattern as standing for themselves
