openlog -- open connection to system logger


int openlog(string ident, int option, int facility);

openlog() opens a connection to the system logger for a program. The string ident is added to each message. Values for option and facility are given in the next section. The use of openlog() is optional; It will automatically be called by syslog() if necessary, in which case ident will default to false. See also syslog() and closelog().
