Or, having library access: libc: if-error [load/library] [if-error [load/library] [ print "FATAL: Unable to load!" quit ]] openlog: make routine! [ ident [string!] option [integer!] facility [integer!] ] libc "openlog" syslog: make routine! [ priority [integer!] format [string!] str [string!] ] libc "syslog" ; done this way to avoid the GC destroying the string ident-string: "your ident string" LOG_DAEMON: 16 openlog ident-string 0 LOG_DAEMON ; use your own options and facility - see man page ; now you can call syslog HTH, Gabriele
