Erlang driver for syslog

This is an erlang port driver for interacting with syslog.

Installing it

./rebar compile
sudo ./rebar install

Trying it

You should have a look at syslog.h

In an other shell :

$ tail -f /var/log/sylsog

Or, for mac users :

$ tail -f /var/log/system.log

In erlang shell :

$ erl
> syslog:start().
> syslog:open("Beuha", [cons, perror, pid], local0).
> syslog:log(err, "Damned").

API
