Sys::Syslog(3)							Sys::Syslog(3)

NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     Sys::Syslog, openlog, closelog, setlogmask, syslog	- Perl interface to
     the UNIX syslog(3)	calls

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

	 use Sys::Syslog;

	 openlog $ident, $logopt, $facility;
	 syslog	$priority, $format, @args;
	 $oldmask = setlogmask $mask_priority;

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     Sys::Syslog is an interface to the	UNIX syslog(3) program.	 Call syslog()
     with a string priority and	a list of printf() args	just like syslog(3).

     Syslog provides the functions:

     openlog $ident, $logopt, $facility
	  $ident is prepended to every message.	 $logopt contains one or more
	  of the words pid, ndelay, cons, nowait.  $facility specifies the
	  part of the system

     syslog $priority, $format,	@args
	  If $priority permits,	logs ($format, @args) printed as by
	  printf(3V), with the addition	that %m	is replaced with "$!" (the
	  latest error message).

     setlogmask	$mask_priority
	  Sets log mask	$mask_priority and returns the old mask.
