This isn't new to me, but maybe someone might think "hey that's just
what I wanted", since it's a slow day on yon list.
If your running an application and want to capture the output to a system
log file, you can use logger.
Instead of explain it in too much depth, try the below while tail -f'ing
echo test | logger -p daemon.info -t \[test\]
You'll now have an idea of what it does and why you might like to use it,
of course you can do more so you can always rtfm @ `man logger`.
