writelog - add a entry to an INN log file.
writelog name text...
The writelog script is used to write a log entry or send it as mail. The
name parameter specifies the name of the log file where the entry should
be written. If it is the word ``mail'' then the entry is mailed to the
news administrator, <config$NEWSMASTER> (typically usenet .) The data
that is written or sent consists of the text given on the command line,
followed by standard input indented by four spaces. Shlock(1) is used to
avoid simultaneous updates to a single log file.
