splogger - make entries in syslog
splogger [ tag [ fac ] ]
splogger reads a series of messages and feeds them to syslog. At the front of each message it puts tag (default: splogger) and a numerical timestamp. splogger checks for alert: or warning: at the beginning of each message. It selects a priority of LOG_ALERT, LOG_WARNING, or LOG_INFO accordingly. splogger logs messages with facility fac. fac (default: 2) must be numeric. splogger converts unprintable characters to question marks. splogger does not log blank lines. splogger folds messages after 800 characters, since syslog can't handle long messages. splogger uses a + after the timestamp to mark folded lines. Note that the syslog mechanism is inherently unreliable: it does not guarantee that messages will be logged. It is also very slow.
