The EventLog library aims to be a replacement of the simple syslog()
API provided on UNIX systems. The major difference between EventLog and
syslog is that EventLog tries to add structure to messages.
Where you had a simple non-structrured string in syslog() you have a
combination of description and tag/value pairs.
EventLog provides an interface to build, format and output an event
record. The exact format and output method can be customized by the
administrator via a configuration file.
This package provides the source files.
The package may contain Novell/SUSE specific modifications/extensions,
please report problems using Bugzilla at https://bugzilla.novell.com/
