     splogger - make entries in syslog

     splogger [ tag [ fac ] ]

     splogger reads a series of messages and feeds them  to  sys-
     log.   At  the  front  of each message it puts tag (default:
     splogger) and a numerical timestamp.

     splogger checks for alert: or warning: at the  beginning  of
     each   message.    It   selects  a  priority  of  LOG_ALERT,
     LOG_WARNING, or LOG_INFO accordingly.

     splogger logs messages with facility fac.  fac (default:  2)
     must be numeric.

     splogger converts unprintable characters to question marks.

     splogger does not log blank lines.

     splogger folds messages after 800 characters,  since  syslog
     can't  handle  long  messages.   splogger uses a + after the
     timestamp to mark folded lines.

     Note that the syslog mechanism is inherently unreliable:  it
     does not guarantee that messages will be logged.  It is also
     very slow.
