NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     logger [-is] [-f file] [-p pri] [-t tag] [message ...]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     The logger utility provides a shell command interface to the
     system log module.

     The options are as follows:

     -i        Log the process ID of the logger process with each

     -f file  Log the specified file.

     -p pri   Enter the message with the specified priority.  The
priority may
              be specified numerically or as a ``facility.level''
pair.  For
              example, ``-p local3.info'' logs the message(s)  as
              level in the local3 facility.  The default is ``user.notice''.

     -s       Log the message to standard error, as well  as  the
system log.

     -t  tag   Mark every line in the log with the specified tag.

     message  Write the message to log; if not specified, and the
-f flag is
              not provided, standard input is logged.

     The  logger utility exits 0 on success or >0 if an error occurred.
