       writelog name text...


DESCRIPTION

       The  writelog  script  is used to write a log entry or send it as mail.
       The name parameter specifies the name of the log file where  the  entry
       should be written.  If it is the word ‘‘mail’’ then the entry is mailed
       to  the   news   administrator,   <USER specified with --with-news-mas-
       ter at configure>.   The  data  that is written or sent consists of the
       text given on the command line, followed by standard input indented  by
       four spaces.  Shlock(1) is used to avoid simultaneous updates to a sin-
       gle log file.
