logprn - merge Common-Log Format web logs based on time-stamps SYNOPSIS
logprn logfile idle-time[:max-wait] command DESCRIPTION
The logprn program is designed to print new data that is appended to log files. It will wait until a specified amount of time has elapsed since the last write to the file before printing the data. It will print the data by pipeing it to a specified command. The command will be run by popen(3) so the usual shell commands will operate (whether this is a bug or a feature is a matter of opinion). OPTIONS
logfile specifies a file to read data from. It should be a regular file not a pipe, device, or anything else. idle-time max-wait command EXIT STATUS
0 Never happens, this program will run forever. 1 Bad command-line parameters or couldn't stat the log file on startup - couldn't start the program. 2 File disappeared or became unreadable at run-time. 3 Can't run the specified command. AUTHOR
This program, its manual page, and the Debian package were written by Russell Coker <>. BUGS
Uses popen (3) but I consider this a feature not a bug. SEE ALSO

sredird - RFC 2217 serial port server SYNOPSIS
sredird [-i] log-level serial-device lock-file [poll-interval] DESCRIPTION
This manual page documents briefly the sredird, program. This program when run through inetd will use the RFC 2217 extensions to TELNET to implement serial commands over the TCP connection and interface to a specified serial port. OPTIONS
An optional first parameter is '-i' to enable compatability with Cisco IOS. The first mandatory parameter is the log level for use in syslog. The next mandatory parameter is the device node for the serial device, it must be a fully qualified path. The final mandatory parameter is the file name for the lock file to be used to prevent multiple instances of sredird from talking to the serial port at the same time, or to allow sharing a port between modem and sredird. EXAMPLE
Here is a configuration line for running it from inetd: sredir stream tcp nowait root /usr/sbin/tcpd /usr/sbin/sredird 5 /dev/modem /var/lock/LCK..modem AUTHOR
