LOGSAVE(8)                           System Manager's Manual                           LOGSAVE(8)

       logsave - save the output of a command in a logfile

       logsave [ -asv ] logfile cmd_prog [ ... ]

       The  logsave program will execute cmd_prog with the specified argument(s), and save a copy
       of its output to logfile.  If the containing directory for logfile does not exist, logsave
       will  accumulate  the  output in memory until it can be written out.  A copy of the output
       will also be written to standard output.

       If cmd_prog is a single hyphen ('-'), then instead of executing a  program,  logsave  will
       take its input from standard input and save it in logfile

       logsave  is  useful for saving the output of initial boot scripts until the /var partition
       is mounted, so the output can be written to /var/log.

       -a     This option will cause the output to be appended to logfile, instead  of  replacing
              its current contents.

       -s     This option will cause logsave to skip writing to the log file text which is brackÔÇÉ
              eted with a control-A (ASCII 001 or Start of Header) and control-B  (ASCII  002  or
              Start  of Text).  This allows progress bar information to be visible to the user on
              the console, while not being written to the log file.

       -v     This option will make logsave to be more verbose in its output to the user.
