sissylog(8)		persistent process supervision		   sissylog(8)

NAME
       sissylog	- log stdin to syslog(3)

SYNOPSIS
       sissylog	[-hV] [	ident [	facility ]]

DESCRIPTION
       sissylog	 reads lines from standard input and writes them to the	system
       logger with syslog(3).

       If an ident argument is specified, sissylog prepends  log  entries  ac-
       cordingly.   Otherwise,	entries	are prepended with the identity	string
       ``sissylog''.

       If a facility argument is specified, it should be  in  the  form	 of  a
       string  selected	 from the following list: LOG_AUTH, LOG_CRON, LOG_DAE-
       MON,  LOG_FTP,  LOG_KERN,  LOG_LPR,  LOG_MAIL,  LOG_NEWS,   LOG_SYSLOG,
       LOG_USER,  or LOG_UUCP.	sissylog will use a corresponding facility ar-
       gument with openlog(8).	If the facility	argument is not	 specified  or
       not recognized, sissylog	will use the facility LOG_DAEMON by default.

       sissylog	 inspects the beginning	of each	line for alert:, error:, warn-
       ing:, notice:, or debug:, and sets the priority of each log  entry  ac-
       cordingly.   Otherwise,	entries	are made with the LOG_INFO priority by
       default.

       sissylog	splits lines longer than 800 characters, prepending  continued
       lines  with  a  `+'  character.	sissylog does not log empty lines, and
       converts	unprintable control characters to `?'.
