    Hi man,
    It's not so difficult to find information for the syslog daemon and for any
    program in *nix systems. All you have to do is to read the manual!

    $ man syslogd

    If you want to search the manual pages with a keyword add a '-k' option.
    Read the manual of the 'man' command ('man man') :)

    Best regards,
    Kiril Tsvetkov, BG.
