NAME
     cap_syslog	cap_vsyslog cap_openlog	cap_closelog cap_setlogmask -- library
     for syslog	in capability mode

LIBRARY
     library "libcap_syslog"

SYNOPSIS
     #include <libcasper.h>
     #include <casper/cap_syslog.h>

     void
     cap_syslog(cap_channel_t *chan, int pri, const char *fmt, ...);

     void
     cap_vsyslog(cap_channel_t *chan, int priority, const char *fmt,
	 va_list ap);

     void
     cap_openlog(cap_channel_t *chan, const char *ident, int logopt,
	 int facility);

     void
     cap_closelog(cap_channel_t	*chan);

     int
     cap_setlogmask(cap_channel_t *chan, int maskpri);

DESCRIPTION
     The functions cap_syslog()	cap_vsyslog() cap_openlog() cap_closelog()
     cap_setlogmask() are respectively equivalent to syslog(3),	vsyslog(3),
     openlog(3), closelog(3), setlogmask(3) except that	the connection to the
     system.syslog service needs to be provided.

EXAMPLES
     The following example first opens a capability to casper and then uses
     this capability to	create the system.syslog casper	service	to log mes-
     sages.

     cap_channel_t *capcas, *capsyslog;

     /*	Open capability	to Casper. */
     capcas = cap_init();
     if	(capcas	== NULL)
	     err(1, "Unable to contact Casper");

     /*	Enter capability mode sandbox. */
     if	(cap_enter() < 0 && errno != ENOSYS)
	     err(1, "Unable to enter capability	mode");

     /*	Use Casper capability to create	capability to the system.syslog	service. */
     capsyslog = cap_service_open(capcas, "system.syslog");
     if	(capsyslog == NULL)
	     err(1, "Unable to open system.syslog service");

     /*	Close Casper capability, we don't need it anymore. */
     cap_close(capcas);

     /*	Let's log something. */
     cap_syslog(capsyslog, LOG_NOTICE, "System logs from capability mode.");
