syslog(n) Tcl Syslog extension syslog(n)

syslog - send message to syslog from Tcl script

package require Syslog
syslog ?options? priority message


This command sends message to system syslog facility with given priority. Valid priorities are:
emerg, alert, crit, err, error, warning, notice, info, debug.
By default, facility user is used and value of tcl variable argv0 is used as ident string. However, any of the following options may be specified before priority to control these parameters:
-facility value
Use specified facility instead of user. Following facility are recognized:
authpriv, cron, daemon, kernel, lpr, mail, news, syslog, user, uucp, local0, local1, local2.
-ident string
Use given string instead of argv0 variable for ident string.
-options list
Set syslog options such as LOG_CONS, LOG_NDELAY List should contain one or more strings CONS, NDELAY, ODELAY, PERROR, PID, NOWAIT
Options NDELAY and ODELAY are effectively no-op, becouse openlog(3) call is only performed upon first message send.
Numeric value of options can be specified instead of list for compatibility with older versions. Mixing of numeric and string constants are not allowed.
If any options are specified, priority and message arguments can be omitted. In this case syslog command only sets logging parameters which would be used for subsequent calls.
