# Specific attributes
-prefix => prefix,
-facility => "user",
-showpid => 1,
-socktype => "unix",
-logopt => "ndelay",


The syslog logging channels directs operations to syslog() via the Sys::Syslog(3) interface.

The creation routine make() takes the following switches:

"-facility" => facility
Tell syslog() which facility to use (e.g. ``user'', ``auth'', ``daemon''). Unlike the Sys::Syslog(3) interface, the facility is set once and for all: every message logged through this channel will use the same facility.
"-logopt" => syslog options
Specifies logging options, under the form of a string containing zero or more of the words ndelay, cons or nowait.
"-prefix" => prefix
The prefix here is syslog's identification string.
"-showpid" => flag
Set to true to have the PID of the process logged. It is false by default.
"-socktype" => (unix | inet)
Specifies the logging socket type to use. The default behaviour is to use Sys:Syslog's default.
