POSTLOG(1)							    POSTLOG(1)

       postlog - Postfix-compatible logging utility

       postlog [-iv] [-c config_dir] [-p priority] [-t tag] [text...]

       The  postlog(1)	command implements a Postfix-compatible logging inter‐
       face for use in, for example, shell scripts.

       By default, postlog(1) logs the text given on the command line  as  one
       record.	If  no text is specified on the command line, postlog(1) reads
       from standard input and logs each input line as one record.

       Logging is sent to syslogd(8); when the standard error stream  is  con‐
       nected to a terminal, logging is sent there as well.

       The following options are implemented:

       -c config_dir
	      Read  the  configuration	 file  in  the named directory
	      instead of the default configuration directory.

       -i     Include the process ID in the logging tag.

       -p priority
	      Specifies the logging severity:  info  (default),	 warn,	error,
	      fatal, or panic.

       -t tag Specifies	 the  logging  tag, that is, the identifying name that
	      appears at the beginning of each logging record. A  default  tag
	      is used when none is specified.

       -v     Enable  verbose  logging	for  debugging	purposes.  Multiple -v
	      options make the software increasingly verbose.

	      Directory with the file.

       The following parameters are especially relevant to  this  pro‐
