     NAME
          splogger - make entries in syslog

     SYNOPSIS
          splogger [ tag [ fac ] ]

     DESCRIPTION
          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.
