LOGSAVE(8)		    System Manager's Manual		    LOGSAVE(8)

NAME
       logsave - save the output of a command in a logfile

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

DESCRIPTION
       The  logsave  program  will  execute  cmd_prog with the specified argu-
       ment(s),	and save a copy	of its output to logfile.  If  the  containing
       directory  for logfile does not exist, logsave will accumulate the out-
       put 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 pro-
       gram, 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.

OPTIONS
       -a     This option will cause the output	to be appended to logfile, in-
	      stead 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 con-
	      sole, while not being written to the log file.

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