To append to an existing logfile, add the option "-a". To add a timestamp before each line, use the option "-T". To leave neocon, type "~.". The escape character (~) can be changed with the option "-e escape". To manually switch to the next device, enter "~n". Known issues ------------ - the escape character is sent to the target
