       elog - utility program for Electronic Logbook ELOG


       elog  -a attribute=value [ -e id ] [ -f file... ] -h host [ -l logbook ] [ -m textfile ] [
       -p port ] [ -r id ] [ -s subdir ] [ -u username password ] [ -v ] [ -w password ]  message
       [ -x ]


       The  Electronic  Logbook  ELOG  can  be  used to store and retrieve messages through a Web
       interface. Depending on the configuration, the ELOG system can host one or  more  logbooks
       which  are  stored  in  separate  sections  on  the server.  elog is the standalone client
       program which can be used from the command line to interact with the ELOG daemon  (elogd).
       The  elog  message can either be submitted on the command line or piped through `stdin' or
       in a file with the `-m' flag.  For the former case, message with blanks must  be  enclosed
       in  quotes.   Multiple  attributes  can  be  specified as well as several attachments. The
       password must match the write password defined on the server.  If  user  level  access  is
       defined  on the server (via the `Password file' option), a valid user name / password pair
       must be specified with the `-u' option.

       The elog program makes it possible to submit logbook entries automatically by  the  system
       or  from  scripts.  In  some  shift  logbooks this feature is used to enter alarm messages
       automatically into the logbook.


       elog accepts the following options:

       -a attribute=value
              set attribute to value

       -e id  edit existing message of id

       -f file...
              attach files while submitting

       -h host
              host where elogd is running

       -l logbook
              name of logbook or experiment

       -m textfile
              submit message from textfile

       -p port
              port where elogd is running

       -r id  reply to existing message of id

       -s dir directory where logbooks reside

       -u username password
              username and password

       -v     verbose output

       -w password
              write password defined on server

       -x     suppress email notification
