     syslogc collects messages from the syslogd(8) memory buffer specified by
     the logname argument.

     For syslogc to work, syslogd(8) must be configured with one or more
     memory buffer logs (see syslog.conf(5) for details) and have a reporting

     By default, syslogc will query the specified log and return it to stan-
     dard output.

     The options are as follows:

     -C      Request that the log buffer be cleared without reading it.

     -c      Request that the log buffer be cleared once it has been read.

     -o      Check whether the specified log has overflowed. If the log has

             exit status will be set to 1.

     -q      Request a list of available logs.

     The syslogc command first appeared in OpenBSD 3.5.
