The hsyslog package

[Tags:bsd3, library, test]

A Haskell interface to syslog(3) as specified in POSIX.1-2008. The entire public API lives in System.Posix.Syslog. There is a set of exposed modules available underneath that one, which contain various implementation details that may be useful to other developers who want to implement syslog-related functionality. Users of syslog, however, do not need them.

An example program that demonstrates how to use this library is available in the examples directory of this package.
