       logsave - save the output of a command in a logfile


       logsave [ -asv ] logfile cmd_prog [ ... ]


       The  logsave program will execute cmd_prog with the specified argument(s), and save a copy
       of its output to logfile.  If the containing directory for logfile does not exist, logsave
       will  accumulate  the  output in memory until it can be written out.  A copy of the output
       will also be written to standard output.

       If cmd_prog is a single hyphen ('-'), then instead of executing a  program,  logsave  will
       take its input from standard input and save it in logfile

       logsave  is  useful for saving the output of initial boot scripts until the /var partition
       is mounted, so the output can be written to /var/log.


       -a     This option will cause the output to be appended to logfile, instead  of  replacing
              its current contents.

       -s     This  option  will  cause  logsave  to  skip  writing to the log file text which is
              bracketed with a control-A (ASCII 001 or Start of Header) and control-B (ASCII  002
              or  Start of Text).  This allows progress bar information to be visible to the user
              on the console, while not being written to the log file.

       -v     This option will make logsave to be more verbose in its output to the user.
