A Generic Logfile Manipulator.
by Rocky Bernstein

A bane of Systems Administration work is managing log files, such as system log messages (from syslogd), mail log messages (from sendmail), printer spooling error logs, and so on.

Many operating systems provide some sort of script or scripts to assist this task, such as logchecker, newsyslog on Solaris, or skulker on AIX, however too often these are limited to one kind of log file, and limited in the abilty to customize in the number of old files saved, whether or not to compress the old file and so on.

recycle-logs attempts to overcome these limitations. File rotation and other customization is based on control info specified in one or several configuration files.
