       The name	parameter specifies the	name of	the log	file where  the	 entry
       should be written.  If it is the	word ``mail'' then the entry is	mailed
       to  the	 news	administrator,	 _USER specified with --with-news-mas-

       text given on the command line, followed	by standard input indented  by
