Harley Gorrell’s download: http://www.mahalito.net/~harley/elisp/syslog-mode.el. Emacswiki version download: Lisp:syslog-mode.el.
syslog-mode.el is a mode for viewing system logfiles.
Put syslog-mode.el in your load-path and add the following lines to your emacs configuration file:
(require 'syslog-mode) (add-to-list 'auto-mode-alist '("/var/log.*\\'" . syslog-mode))
Tip: When you would easy move to the first line of your boot sequence configure the variable
syslog-boot-start-regexp (default is SunOS) and use C-<down> in the syslog-mode.
There is also a SyslogClientServer for both sending and displaying received syslog messages.
