logsave - Unix, Linux Command
logsave - save the output of a command in a logfile
logfile cmd_prog [ ... ]
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.
cmd_prog is a single hyphen (-), then instead of executing a program,
logsave will take its input from standard input and save it in
logsave is useful for saving the output of initial boot scripts
until the /var partition is mounted, so the output can be written to
This option will cause the output to be appended to
logfile, instead of replacing its current contents.
This option will cause
logsave to skip writing to the log file text which is bracketed 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.
This option will make
logsave to be more verbose in its output to the user.
