NAME

       writelog - add a entry to an INN log file.

SYNOPSIS

       writelog name text...

DESCRIPTION

       The  writelog  script  is used to write a log entry or send it as mail.
       The name parameter specifies the name of the log file where  the  entry
       should be written.  If it is the word ‘‘mail’’ then the entry is mailed
       to the news administrator, usenet.  The data that is  written  or  sent
       consists  of  the  text given on the command line, followed by standard
       input indented by four spaces.  Shlock(1) is used to avoid simultaneous
       updates to a single log file.
