NAME
       postlog - Postfix-compatible logging utility

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

DESCRIPTION
       The  postlog  command  implements  a  Postfix-compatible logging interface for use in, for
       example, shell scripts.

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

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

       The following options are implemented:

       -c config_dir
	      Read  the  main.cf 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 begin-
	      ning of each logging record.

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