slogi()

Send a message to the system logger

Synopsis:

#include <stdio.h>
#include <sys/slog.h>

int slogi( int code, 
           int severity,
           int nargs,
            ... );

Arguments:

opcode
A combination of a major and minor code.
severity
The severity of the log message; see "Severity levels," in the documentation for slogf().
nargs
The number of integers to send. A maximum of 32 integers is allowed.

The additional arguments are the integers that you want to write.

Library:

libc

Use the -l c option to qcc to link against this library. This library is usually included automatically.


Note: This function is in libc.a, but not in libc.so (in order to save space).

Description:

The slog*() functions send log messages to the system logger, slogger. To send formatted messages, use slogf(). If you have programs that scan log files for specified codes, you can use slogb() or slogi() to send a block of structures or int's, respectively.

Errors:

Any value from the Errors section in MsgSend(), as well as:

EACCES
Insufficient permission to write to the log file.
EINVAL
The size of the data buffer exceeded 32 integers.
ENOENT
Invalid log file or directory specified, or slogger isn't running.

Examples:

See slogf()
