Outdated egg!

This is an egg for CHICKEN 4, the unsupported old release. You're almost certainly looking for the CHICKEN 5 version of this egg, if it exists.

If it does not exist, there may be equivalent functionality provided by another egg; have a look at the egg index. Otherwise, please consider porting this egg to the current version of CHICKEN.



Write to syslog as an output port.

The source for this extension is available here.



open-syslog identity priority #!optional (options opt/pid) (facility facility/user)procedure

Creates an output port with the given syslog configuration.

The resulting port will buffer output until a newline is encountered, at which point its contents will be flushed to the syslog.


This parameter provides a default syslog port.

Its starting value is a port that uses (program-name) as its identity and prio/info as its message priority.
